Sixteen Democrats Sign Letter Vowing to Vote Against Nancy Pelosi's Bid To Become Speaker Again

A candidate for Speaker of the House needs 218 votes. Assuming all Republicans vote against Nancy Pelosi (an assumption we shouldn't make, because Trump claims he'll get Republicans to vote for Pelosi), then she can only afford to lose 15 Democrat votes out of the 233 they have.

Sixteen Democrats signed a letter stating they will vote against Pelosi, and three other Democrats have vowed to vote against her previously.

So unless Trump actually does convince Republicans to vote for Pelosi -- which would make her Speakership illegitimate to many Democrats (whoopsie) -- she can't win at the moment.
