"Democratic women in particular and independent women, progressive women, upscale suburban women were clearly energised by the Trump victory and the Trump presidency in a negative way", said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake.
Few leaders have reclaimed the House speaker's office after losing it and, as the first woman to wield the gavel, Pelosi's ascent would be a milestone.
He took an unabashed victory lap and, despite the split decision, declaring in a free-wheeling, combative, 90-minute White House news conference that "I thought it was very close to complete victory".
That echoed a similar message from Trump, who on Twitter cautioned Democrats not to use their new House majority to launch investigations into his administration.
While describing Trump's proposal as a "campaign tactic", Neal added that the president's request might be able to be fulfilled if the administration is prepared to make accommodations. The president welcomes that fight. They mobilized on the grassroots level and played larger roles as donors than in previous election cycles.
It was unclear what leaks he was referring to.
Neal said he expected Trump's trade deal with Mexico and Canada to come before his committee soon and Democrats, who traditionally support labor unions, will want to ensure that global trade benefits American workers. Though no formal war room was established, senior aides convened meetings to map out the administration's strategy for combating newly emboldened Democrats.

The California Democrat does not think Americans fully understand the significance of the speaker's job, which, after the vice president, is next in line to the White House.
"I do think they will definitely try to impeach nearly immediately", said Meadows, even though Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have downplayed that issue during the campaign.
Democrats' dreams of the Senate majority, always unlikely, were shattered after losses in top Senate battlegrounds: Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee, North Dakota and Texas.
While Republicans retained control of the Senate, likely gaining a seat or two, it was the House of Representatives that will mean so much to Democrats and Trump's agenda heading into 2019 and 2020.
Almost two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote. And that includes passing budget measures to keep the government in operation.
Trump also has sent soldiers to the Mexican border and threatened to have illegal immigrants shot if they throw stones.
That muted some of the opposition to him and the Democratic Party's ambivalence towards illegal immigration as a caravan of several thousands of Central Americans marching under the flags Guatemala and Honduras marched towards the U.S. roused Trump's base.
And, it should be noted, the Democrats got the majority back by winning the total national raw vote for House candidates by several points.
But under the Constitution's general operating principles, the House and the Senate need to agree in the majority on any laws that are passed, subject to a presidential veto.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi promised that her party would serve as a counterweight to the White House. He also encouraged conservatives to foster what he believes would be counter-productive impeachment talk among Democrats. Some are from districts Trump won in 2016 and see the San Franciscan as too liberal, while others represent liberal strongholds that view her as too willing to compromise. Trump as usual summed up the ridiculous Republican pretzel logic by saying "the Democrat plan would obliterate ObamaCare" at a rally this week. They were seen as overreaching, and that helped boost Clinton's poll numbers.
Several firm Trump supporters, including Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, won their races.
