    Politically, their main worry is a primary challenge, and they need to protect themselves against a challenge from the left.

      ...I could also ask how many Democrats have a much more centrist voting record only because they have to worry about a general election?

      Given that these folks are from their districts themselves, at least some of them probably share the political views of the population at large there.  So, it's really hard to say how many just "vote progressive" to avoid a contested Dem primary.
