As House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi works to shore up support for her bid to be become Speaker of the House in the 116th Congress, The Fix is analyzing whether she has the votes to win the position. Right now, it appears that she does.

Pelosi won the Democratic caucus’s nomination for the speakership on Nov. 28, collecting 203 of 238 votes in a closed-door session. Thirty-two members voted no, three submitted blank ballots and one was absent. The final vote for Speaker before the whole House will be on Jan. 3.

If the current leads hold in the two outstanding House races not yet called by the Associated Press, Democrats will control 235 seats next year.

This means that Pelosi can only afford to lose the votes of 17 representatives. Currently, 16 oppose her, and 17 are dodging questions.

This assumes that every Republican will vote against her, and no members vote present.

While it is unclear which, if any, members will vote against Pelosi on the House floor, the on-record opposition of at least 11 non-incumbent and five incumbent Democrats would not be enough to prevent her from reaching the needed 218 votes. In 2016, 63 Democrats voted against Pelosi in a caucus vote but only four voted against her on the floor less than two months later.

After pushing off pre-election questions about House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, many non-incumbent Democrats are still dodging post-election questions about her.
