Political positions

Upton is currently an establishment GOP obstructionist who has a moderate social record and flip-flopped over his career politician years as a representative.[1]


Upton is mostly pro-life, having an 82% rating from the NRLC and a 0% approval rating from the NARAL.


Having a serious condition of Romnesia, Upton firmly supported border security measures[2] before he opposed them, such as opposing Trump's border wall.[3] Upton even went as far as to join 33 other establishment GOP representatives calling for maintaining DACA amnesty before the end of 2017.[4] In early 2021, he also supported a mass-amnesty bill for illegal aliens.[5]


In 2013, Upton voted to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.[6] Among other non-conservative positions, Upton co-sponsored the lightbulb ban bill[7] as well as voted against President Donald Trump’s border wall. In late July 2020, Rep. Upton joined 71 other House Republicans along with all Democrats in voting to remove Civil War-era statues.[8] He also voted in favor of a bill sponsored by far-left Democrat Grace Meng to condemn the use of the term "Chinese virus" as being "racist".[9] Additionally, he voted with democrats in support of "gun control" measures in 2021.[10]
