“When democracy, the pinnacle of freedoms that Americans hold dear, is at stake, it may be a signal of widespread conflict,” the authors of the research wrote.
Although conflicts between presidential candidates are usual, the conflict between former President Donald Trump and current Vice President Joe Biden is producing unprecedented tension in the United States.
