The CHIPS rating is the result of a combination of factors. If you see a conservative on the report who you believe should be reflected as a 5-CHIPS Chipper, please contact us to learn more. At a high level, take a look at the CHIPS Platform located in the "About" section. If a candidate is truly conservative, they should find themselves agreeing with most all of the principles and values. Once a candidate attests to the principles, we engage in a secondary verification process which involves interaction with multiple organizations focusing in specific areas (2nd Amendment, Immigration Reform, Tax Policy, Life, etc.).
