Democrats argue that some of the same tactics that helped energise Republican voters also motivate their base, particularly Donald Trump's attacks on Dr Ford.
While Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., saidKavanaugh's confirmation was a shining moment for the GOP heading into next month's pivotal elections, GOP Gov. John Kasich of OH predicted "a good year" for Democrats and said he wonders about "the soul of our country" in the long term after the tumultuous hearings.
McConnell also signaled on Fox News that he'd be open to putting a Trump nominee on the Supreme Court in 2020, at the end of Trump's term-as opposed to his lame-duck opposition to Obama's nominee. "We stood up for the presumption of innocence. I'm proud of my colleagues".

"I've never been more pissed in my life", Graham added. "That's about to change".
The showdown over Kavanaugh had echoes of current Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas' contentious confirmation hearings in 1991 involving sexual harassment allegations lodged against him by a law professor named Anita Hill.
Kavanaugh staunchly denied the allegations, but almost all Senate Democrats voted against his confirmation. "You saw that today with the screaming and the shouting, not from the 200 people or less - you know what?"
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y. - who would chair the House Judiciary Committee should Democrats win the House majority next month - has said he plans to launch an investigation of Kavanaugh if Democrats win power.

Hirono's assertion that there was corroborating evidence that supported Ford's story is false, as prosecutor Rachel Mitchell specifically noted in her 5-page memo on Ford's testimony.
Trump, last week in MS, attacked Ford's story at length - drawing laughs from the crowd. But I had one beer. I think she feels like she did the right thing. "Unfortunately, nothing in Judge Kavanaugh's record or past have shown he will be such a justice". They are asking me to perform an official act, and if I do not do what they want, $2 million-plus is going to go to my opponent.
Collins said she has to apply her best judgment. She added that she is glad that the Senate voted, keeping her answers very general.
It drew the line under a bruising nomination process defined by harrowing testimony from a woman who says Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were teenagers - and by his fiery rebuttal.
At one point, the talk turned to how Collins decision was not playing well in her home state of Maine.
Graham further stated he was happy the smear campaign against Kavanaugh failed.
One of them was Sen.
