51% : While unquestionably conservative, there were times Hatch differed from many of his conservative colleagues -- including then-President George W. Bush when Hatch pushed for federal funding of embryonic stem cell research.
44% : A conservative on most economic and social issues, he nonetheless teamed with Democrats several times during his long career on issues ranging from stem cell research to rights for people with disabilities to expanding children's health insurance.
25% : One issue Hatch returned to over the course of his career was limiting or outlawing abortion, a position that put him at the center of one of the nation's most controversial issues for decades.
