Politico Thinks We Have 80 or 90 Democrats Voting No
Whether this means voting No in a throw away or when it really matters is not clear, but it's safe to say more than 40 Democrats are voting No when it counts. This means the war funding has to be passed with Republicans or fail.
"In a similar fight a year ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was able to hold her losses to just 32 Democrats and still prevail with token support from five Republicans. Nothing like that seems possible now with Democratic defections pegged at closer to 80 or 90 votes, and the speaker, perhaps fearful of criticism from the left, refusing to say how she will vote on the war funds."
