Politics is a dirty business. The fights that the two parties get themselves into often can resemble a boxing match. In this image Democrats and Republicans are engaged in a violent tousle while the American public looks on as a cautious referee. It is not certain if there was a certain year or political campaign which the author was describing with this image. There was not a date provided in the records that were available. However, the majority of works by this artists have focused on events during the early 1940s. Perhaps this piece is on the controversial events of the 1940 election.
