The Conservapedia Scorecard is an objective and honest evaluation of groups or websites that call themselves conservative or have many conservative members, supporters or visitors. As politics is always changing, the most recent statements or actions of the groups will receive the greatest weighting. Criteria will include whom they invite as speakers at their conventions, what they say about current events, what cases they file briefs in, and how effective they are.
|Group||Speakers at Annual Convention||Recent Positions|
|NRA||Neoconservative speakers featured rather than strong conservatives like Marco Rubio, Michele Bachmann, Rand Paul and Jim DeMint||Supported pro-same-sex marriage candidate Dede Scozzafava rather than Doug Hoffman for Congress in early 2010|
|CPAC||Strong representation by libertarians, but thin on pro-life and traditional marriage issues||Does not take positions but Ron Paul won the straw poll in 2010 and Jim DeMint had the highest approval rating as a speaker|
|Cato||Strongly against Big Government, but weak on traditional conservative values. Opposed the Federal Marriage Amendment|
|National Right to Life|
