The big picture: Just 17 states have ordered people to stay at home, and most of those are states with Democratic governors. Only Ohio, Indiana, Massachusetts and West Virginia have Republican governors.
If Trump declares it’s time to start getting back to normal, those GOP governors could face pressure to start easing their own social restrictions, too.
That doesn’t mean they’ll do it, but the political pressure will intensify every time Trump talks about the importance of restarting the economy. And it could become even less likely that other Republican governors will impose stay-at-home orders of their own.
