Last night, during a 60 Minutes interview, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to downplay the role a small, vocal group of radical liberals, led by Representative Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez, has had in pushing House Democrats to the Left.

Lesley Stahl: You have these wings– [Ocasio-Cortez], and her group on one side–

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: That’s like five people.

Lesley Stahl: No, it’s– the progressive group is more than five.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Well, the progressive– I’m a progressive. Yeah.

Lesley Stahl: Well, as I understand it the progressives want radical change. They wanna get rid of Obamacare and replace it with Medicare for all. I was under the impression that you had said that you do not favor Medicare for all…

But according to our research, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s faction in the House is much larger than Speaker Pelosi admits and makes up a significant part of the Democrats’ majority.

According to data compiled by CQ, 30 Democrats in the House of Representatives have voted with Ocasio-Cortez 95% of the time or more this year. To put that figure in perspective, the House Freedom Caucus currently has 33 members.

This voting bloc reflects just how important Ocasio-Cortez and her allies have become in setting the tone for House Democrats’ agenda.
