Look, Kavanaugh could get confirmed.

But there is no evidence of "momentum" following the hearing. Kavanaugh's performance was designed to please Trump and he liked it. That doesn't mean anything.

Murkowski, Collins, Flake and others have not announced their vote.
McConnell is desperate to create a momentum narrative. So desperate he released a statement announcing his own "decision" to vote for Kavanaugh.

The reason is that what happens now could have an impact on the votes of key Senators.

He's is trying to discourage the opposition.
Beware of "sources" that claim to know how Murkowski, Collins and others are going to vote. They can easily make their intentions known publicly. But until they vote, anything can happen.

Among the possibilities is them voting for Kavanaugh. But there are other possibilities.
