Literally 99% of the recent Senate votes have been along party lines. Occasionally they would let a single senator vote "no" to save face in their district and then bring in the vice presidential tie breaker vote.

Don't you remember how huge the Obamacare vote was when Collin, Murkowski, and McCain voted no?

But anyway, if 7 democrats cross over for a total of 60 votes -- that's enough to defeat a presidential veto. That's why the Senate uses 60 as a threshold to pass any bills.
