Republicans are upbeat about their chances of holding on to their (razor thin) Senate majority in the United States midterm elections after the Brett Kavanaugh firestorm and are pointing to internal polling that proves the acrimonius battle for the Supreme Court pick has only boosted the party's chances in the short term and made the elections something more than just about Donald Trump - which is a big deal.
Wall Street Journal: "GOP Muscles Kavanaugh Through Senate" - "The moment California college professor Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony about an alleged sexual assault in the 1980s by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Republicans realized his confirmation was at serious risk".

Hirono also said Sunday that her party should focus on the upcoming elections "like a laser beam" despite calls from some progressives to impeach Kavanaugh if Democrats take control of the House of Representatives.

Before his defence of Justice Kavanaugh, Mr Trump said he would not be firing Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, over claims in the New York Times that he questioned the president's fitness for office. "That is who I am", he said.

And since that is unlikely to come during the election, the best advice I can give my fellow Democrats is to just put impeachment - in all forms, whether it be presidential or judicial - aside.
Kavanaugh officially became a member of the high court Saturday.
'He's a great person, and it was very, very unfair what happened to him, ' Trump said.

"The Supreme Court is a team of nine, and I will always be a team player on the team of nine".
