After a contentious, highly partisan presidential election, the Democrats and Republicans both face serious intra-Party conflicts. President Biden’s comeback victory in the Democratic primary process signaled that the Party had not moved as far left as early predictions had suggested. His early days of governance have been dominated by deep policy disagreements within the Democratic caucus on a range of issues.

After losing control of the Presidency and the Senate, and failing to win back the House, Republicans are also seriously divided about the future trajectory of their Party as they negotiate their prospects in a post-Trump era. What do these squabbles within each Party portend for the future of American politics? Which political Party will benefit most from the internal divides? Will a competitive Third Party arise? What do these early divisions foretell about the midterm elections and the prospects for 2024 presidential aspirants?
