Dems may hate Trump, but not all of them will vote to impeach

Democrats refuse to stop the train that is impeachment. But some Congressional Democrats are going to think twice about voting yes this week.

Two Democrats voted against the inquiry. One, New Jersey's Jeff Van Drew, is leaving the party completely. Republican strategist Matt Mackowiak says Democrats in districts Trump won in 2016 will think hard about their vote later this week.

"They've had town halls. They've heard from constituents that have encouraged them not to support impeachment," Mackowiak said.

The reason they may break rank is simple. They want to be re-elected in 2020. And Mackowiak says even if they do vote no, this is going to the Senate

"Whether five or two vote no, it's still going to pass. Democrats need 233 votes. They can lose 25 or 16 votes," Mackowiak explained.

But once it gets to the Senate, it's a different ballgame with Republicans in control.
