Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “voted with the president 71 percent of the time when his wishes were clear in advance. Manchin also bucked his caucus on 36 percent of the roll calls where most senators from one party voted differently from most senators on the other side.” Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), meanwhile, “voted the president’s way two-thirds of the time and went against the partisan grain 30 percent of the time.”

Sens. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) “took the president’s side on roughly three out of every five votes in a year when the average Democrat did so on three out of every eight. Donnelly bucked the majority of his colleagues four times more than the typical Democrat (26 percent versus a caucus average 6 percent) and McCaskill did likewise three times as often.”

Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) “stood with Trump just half the time, while Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) did so on 36 percent of the votes.” (Roll Call)
