Arlen Specter Now 67% Democrat

I wonder if that's more than Ben Nelson? LOL.

From FiveThirtyEight.com:

Specter's record in the Senate since changing parties on April 28th has been somewhat more mixed, however. The Senate has held 22 roll call votes since Specter's party switch; Specter has taken the position of the majority of the Democratic caucus on 17 of these (77%). However, some of these votes were procedural with both the Democratic and Republican caucuses in broad agreement.

A table of these votes and some further analysis follows below the fold.
