Since 1990, Roll Call has been tracking the potential influence each state has on national affairs. The largest states regularly rank at the top, but not when measured on a per-lawmaker basis.

Total Clout Index: States are scored from 1 to 100 using a formula that accounts for a wide variety of criteria, including size of the delegation, seniority, number of full committee chairmen and ranking members, and per capita federal spending received.
Clout Per Member Index: Also scored from 1 to 100, this is the indexed result of the state's Total Clout score divided by the number of members of Congress representing the state. This number gives you a sense of the state's influence relative to its population.
