The Republicans who have come out against Trump

James Hohman looks at all the Republicans who have come out against Trump and those who have not and comes to the following conclusion.

Every Republican who has bucked Trump can be pretty easily categorized. A clear pattern emerges: The less directly and immediately accountable to Republican base voters an elected official is, the more likely he or she is to break with Trump. [emphasis in original]

He follows that up with several case studies.  But you know he’s right.
