I have heard that there is already one GOP Senator that has come out and said he will vote no. All it takes is one more and if McConnell use the nuclear option for a wall that a majority of Americans don't want, the GOP may have screwed itself. The country already seems to be turning toward the Dems and if there is a recession losing the Senate and the presidency in 29202 is a real possibility. The GOP will then have nothing available to stop the Dems from doing what they want. For me, this is not a good thing and probably not a good thing for the country. If I was the GOP I would finally go to Trump and say enough is enough and end this fiasco before things get really bad and to tell McConnell not to use the nuclear option.

McConnell has already said that he won't.

More than one Republican senator has said they wouldn't vote for it.
