In recent years, with each election cycle, voting results very often come down to the wire. Consequently, when it comes to politics and ideologies related to our government, America remains completely divided. And with the racial and political reckoning of 2020 after the death of George Floyd, the clash over the true meaning of democracy has burst right back into the spotlight.
