Democratic politicians appear eager to try and channel voter anger over the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to voter turnout in November.
The realities are that Democrats have a better chance at regaining control of the House than they do the Senate. They need to win 23 more seats to take over the House. The hope is that women - already frustrated with President Trump - turn out in droves for the midterms.
Politics Editor at National Journal Josh Kraushaar joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson and Marie Harf to talk midterms.
On Taylor Swift's political statement: Celebrities usually don't have a whole lot of impact on congressional campaigns, but there's one thing that she sort of reflects in this midterm environment, which is a lot of apolitical, moderate voters are coming out and expressing their political allegiances.

On the Senate side: The reality is there's a Blue Wave in the House and there may even be a Red Wave in the Senate. It's really misleading to look at the national numbers when you're trying to look at that Senate map because the biggest battlegrounds are by and large taking place in some of the most conservative states in the country. The reason Mitch McConnell has been so happy over the weekend, in addition to getting Kavanaugh confirmed, is that he sees that added intensity, especially in these conservative states. (4:28)
On if Joe Manchin sealed his reelection with the yes vote: I do. It's tough for Republicans in West Virginia. There was a lot of frustration about the Republican candidate, Patrick Morrisey, who a lot of Republicans privately think he's not really ready for prime time and the only way he had a chance to win that race was if Manchin voted against Kavanaugh.

On the gender gap: This is a historic gender gap we're witnessing, even more specifically Democrats have a historic advantage winning over women in this election. I don't think that's going to change anytime before the election in November. (7:18)
