AbstractThis paper investigates the effect of the Covid-19 and oil prices on the US partisan conflict. Using daily data on world Covid-19 and oil prices, monthly data on the US Partisan Conflict index, January 21 to April 30, 2020, and the MIDAS method, the findings document that both Covid-19 and oil prices mitigate US political polarization. The findings imply that political leaders aim low for partisan gains during stressful times.
