One example of a political divide was the 2020 elections. After Trump's term, many of his supporters were very strong in their beliefs and severely rejected Biden and democrats. The democrats also didn’t want Trump to be re-elected, and many were driven by fear. There were countless protests, fights, twitter and online debates and false news being spread. An article stated that around 40% of Americans had great stress over the electrons. People's ideologies were too deeply rooted so they can’t understand or even tolerate the other side.

Another example was the pandemic. Many of these differences arose through ideologies but came from the parties. Many republicans believed masks shouldn’t be mandated, that covid was a conspiracy, and a lot of other fake news. This was caused by their want of “freedom: and statements from republican political figures. More democrats believed the opposite and listened more to science and what the CDC was staring at. Biden was also big on the mask mandate and getting people vaccinated. This divide caused tension especially in public. There were many instances of anti-maskers screaming at store owners saying they can’t breathe and that they were free to not wear masks.

Finally, another divide comes in with the debate of firearms. There have been a lot of firearm crimes recently which caused the want for gun control. Many republicans believe that owning a gun is their own right and they should be accessible. The Democrats and Biden are trying to bring forth gun and firearm regulations. There is a divide in the parties due to this. Some republicans believe that we should arm staff and teachers, but the opposing side believes this is not a good idea and to make it harder to buy and own guns.
