Over the last several years, the state of political affairs in the United States has become increasingly toxic and volatile. Indeed, the former 45th president of the United States Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election for the office of commander in chief and since this occurrence the country has moved down a divisive, polarized and turbulent path politically. Things have only gotten worse following the 2020 presidential affair. After defeating Trump decisively, Joe Biden promised to be a unifying figure for Americans, but many conservatives have argued that he has only promoted more extreme ideologies and made the political divide wider. Paired with this, the mainstream media has come under fire from activists on both sides of the aisle for biased reporting. A late 2023 poll showed that only 32% of Americans trusted the media, a historic low. 

The upcoming presidential election set to occur in November appears increasingly likely to be a rematch between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. Both men are currently locked in a dead heat, with many polls projecting a very close race. Trump currently maintains narrow leads in many key swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, Georgia, and others, but with over four months remaining until election day, anything can happen politically speaking between now and then. 

Democrats are increasingly worried that Trump may win in November. According to a report published by the Gateway Pundit, Democrats may be preparing a political strategy to combat Trump should he achieve a victory in the upcoming general election. House Democrats in the federal congress are already strategizing to create procedures to roadblock Trumps agenda. The election in November will also decide control of the House of Representatives and the federal Senate, and these crucial institutions of the federal legislature arguably carry as much weight as the presidency when it comes to enacting significant political changes nationally. Only time will tell what eventually happens.
