Currently, republicans control 52 seats in the senate. Schumer said Gorsuch failed to convince him he would be "an independent check on a president who has shown nearly no restraint from executive overreach" or that he would be a neutral justice "free from the biases of politics and ideology".
Schumer said that Senate Democrats weren't impressed by Gorsuch, and he warned that it is going to be hard for him to get 60 votes.
The prior change in the Senate voting rules did not apply to nominees for the Supreme Court or to enactment of legislation. He will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation. "It's to change the nominee".

Expect the Democrats to filibuster every SCOTUS nominee that President Trump produces. He told Politico in January the "practice was that you didn't do it even though the tool is in the toolbox".
The questioning of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch continued Wednesday in the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. With Gorsuch expected to tip the Supreme Court scales toward conservatives, Democrats are especially concerned about what Gorsuch will mean for a number of traditionally liberally causes, including women's reproductive rights.
