"The Senate in the hands of one party and the White House in the hands of another in a presidential election year", McConnell said, according to the Washington Examiner. "Maybe. And there's a possibility they want infrastructure, I want infrastructure, there's something that can bring us together", he said. The confrontational style harkened back to protests by the conservative tea party, which included angry face-offs with lawmakers and a massive Capitol demonstration far larger than last week's rallies.
What's unclear is whether GOP unity is enough to preserve the GOP power in Congress.
Last week saw a jump in enthusiasm among Republican men.
Both parties have detected a surge in engagement among GOP and conservative voters since the nation's attention was grabbed by the confirmation battle over Kavanaugh, including allegations of sexual misconduct that he denied.

Republican Sen. Ann Rivers of La Center, who is involved with her chamber's campaign efforts, said Republicans are "waxing up our red surfboard in case there is a blue wave". (Republicans are especially likely to say they are benefiting from an improved economy: 42% say their family is better off financially than they were a year ago, almost double the percentage of independents who say this, and more than three times the percentage of Democrats.)
