As House Democrats appear set to impeach President Donald Trump, little attention is being paid to those who may have the most to lose politically.

There are currently 31 House Democrats who represent districts the president won in 2016. Some were elected last year in districts that Trump carried heavily in 2016, and Democrats are going to need a majority of them to impeach the president. Two Democrats in Trump country have already signaled that they will not support impeachment. Democratic Reps. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Collin Petersen of Minnesota were the only two Democrats to vote against opening an inquiry into Trump’s now-infamous July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
