Several Senate Democrats remain undecided on whether they will vote to convict or acquit President Trump on charges he obstructed Congress and abused his power, according to reports from Politico on Tuesday.

Alabama's Doug Jones, Montana's Jon Tester, Michigan's Gary Peters, and West Virginia's Joe Manchin have publicly said they are unsure how they will vote in the impeachment trial. Kyrsten Sinema, of Arizona, has not discussed her position since the trial began, but Politico reports she is undecided.

Manchin has not ruled out a vote to acquit the president on one charge, but convict him on the other.

Among the reportedly undecided Democrats, Manchin, Jones, and Sinema are garnering most of the attention as possible dissenters from the Democratic Caucus. All three have previously voted with Republicans.
