So much has been said recently about the rivalry between the House Freedom Caucus and a group called “The Tuesday Group,” a group of largely unnamed so-called “moderates” in the House. The leadership of the Tuesday Group is named, and some members willingly speak to reporters about their agenda. The group boasts of a membership of somewhere between 40 and 50 members, but only a few have outed themselves as part of the secretive backroom group.
The most vocal member is one of the co-chairs named Charlie Dent, a Pennsylvanian Republican whose liberty score reveals that he votes liberal 72% of the time. Along with Dent, Elise Stefanik of New York, who votes liberal 81% of the time, and co-chairs the group along with Dent and Tom MacArthur of New Jersey who has a record of voting 70% liberal. Chris Collins of New York is a member, and votes 77% liberal, along with Adam Kinzinger of Illinois who votes 67% liberal, Pat Tiberi of Ohio, who votes 60% liberal, John Faso of New York who hasn’t a liberty score yet because he’s new, Barbara Comstock of Virginia who votes 81% liberal, Fred Upton of Michigan who votes 66% liberal, and Rodney Davis of Illinois who votes 70% liberal. Others stay largely away from claiming they are part of the group, but I have been able to identify about half of the group and the picture of the membership emerges as a group of liberal enablers of Democratic policy.

71 out of 435 individuals in the house, are members of these groups, assuming there are no members of both.
So, I am wondering where the power in these groups is, because by the numbers, they are small groups.

Ah, but while Trump was campaigning, he said he could bring them together instead of dividing them. He's not very successful at reaching out to people, is he?
