Manifest Destiny, associated with the Democratic Party was the main issue in the election of President James K. Polk in 1844. Polk advocated both the annexation of Texas (which, it was commonly understood, would likely lead to war with Mexico) and the assertion of American claims on territory in Oregon.
Clearly Manifest Destiny had a big impact on the united states, fueling its expansion all the way to the Pacific, making America what it is today. ... Manifest Destiny brought money, land, resources, and a strengthened economy to the Americans.
Hola, Como Estas? In the election of 1844, James K. Polk defeated Henry Clay for president. Polk was known as "Young Hickory" ,after Andrew Jackson, due to his similar beliefs and his birth in Pineville, NC only some 20 miles from Jackson's birthplace.Polk ran on a very clear "Manifest Destiny" platform.In the 1840s and 1850s, many Americans felt that God had "manifestly" destined the American people to spread their democratic institutions over the entire continent and even over South America as well. To vote for Polk was to vote for expansion. Polk's victory was perceived by him as a "mandate" by the American people—an order to go ahead with expansion of the United States. Manifest Destiny played a huge role in the election of 1844 and is what ultimately decided who the Presidency would go to.-Autumn

Th answer is stated below.

Manifest destiny played a really important role in the expansion to Oregon, which was in dispute with Britain. Thousands of Americans migrated to Oregon in the 1840s over the Oregon Trail. Britain was trying to move the boundary line to include more of present day Washington state but people in support of Manifest Destiny wanted all of Oregon. There was a lot of back and forth on the issue, especially when President Polk was elected. Eventually they settled with only part of Oregon (at the time) because the US was able to enter the Mexican-American War and did not want to fight with Great Britain as well.
Texas was originally owned by Mexico but in 1836 they declared their independence from Mexico and became the Republic of Texas. Then Texas requested to join the US. While the US wanted the land, it was controversial because Texas was place where slaves could be owned and a lot of Democratic politicians in the US government disagreed on the subject. James K. Polk favored the annexation of Texas and when he was elected as president he approved expansion to Texas.
Essentially, Manifest Destiny acted as a platform for people to support expansion to places like Texas and Oregon despite the conflicts they encountered in acquiring the lands.
this question is confusing, could you reword it?
an aneroid barometer is different from a mercury barometer in that it provides readings that increase as air pressure increases.
