Like all Democrats, Chuck Schumer has been opposed to the reopening of schools this fall.

Until now.

Schumer is suddenly saying that schools must open for the sake of the economy. Did Democrats just get some new polling data that made them realize they are on the wrong side of this issue?

Schumer, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have been locked in negotiations with the White House and Republican leadership, trying to agree on a COVID-19 economic relief package. Those talks have stalled, and Schumer criticized Republicans for not being willing to spend enough to help the country, which he said includes funding to help schools reopen safely.

“If we don’t open up the schools, you’re going to hurt the economy significantly because lots of people can’t go to work,” Schumer said. “Executive orders leave out schools altogether.”

Why the change of heart?

Schumer knows his party is in trouble.

Could there be any other explanation?
