7. Manchin is democratic senator in a very red state.

I once got bounced from DU for a message denigrating Joe Manchin, The truth is that he is a Democratic senator walking a very thin line. To retain his seat he has to appeal to all West Virginians, a state that Trump carried easily. Sometimes he will take a position opposite of the democratic party. Although I may disagree, I realize that he wants to be reelected, and I want him to be reelected The is no other Democrat in the state that can win an election as Senator. We love him, we hate him, but he is still a democrat. The alternative is two Republican Senators from West Virginia.

we can pick up another Democratic Senator or 2. Republicans always carry WV, except for one time that that I remember off hand. Trump was not a fluke.

11. The quickest way for Manchin to bring the most attention to voting with his party

is bringing this kind of media attention to it. IOW, shut the hell up and vote with your party and most illiterate GQPers will be none the wiser. He's going to be a pill the next 2 years trying to make the most of his unusual status.
