During a Republican presidential debate Saturday, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had a spat about who was more conservative as each clawed for blocks of Republican voters needed to topple front-runner Mitt Romney.

According to a study done back in 2004 though, Paul was the more conservative of the two by a fairly healthy margin.

A list put together at voteview.com found that out of the 3,320 individuals (1 being the most liberal and 3,320 being the most conservative) who had served in the House or Senate from 1937 to 2002, Santorum ranked 2,674, while Paul ranked 3,320.

“Four or five times he voted to raise the national debt, so that tells you how conservative he is,” Paul said Saturday about Santorum. Based on the survey, Paul could question pretty much any politician’s conservative record against his own.
