Impact of congressional polls on US president

Divisions between Congress and president were designed by framers of the US constitution to limit power concentration.

    Tuesday's election is not just about picking a president.

    Eligible voters in the US will also choose a group of legislators who can either push forward or block the President's policies.

    Historically, the relationship between the President and Congress has faced difficulties.

    Though this was an intentional act by the framers of the US constitution to keep any one branch of the government from concentrating power, but it has often created friction between the president and Congress.
