The first domestic issue would be the famous "baby boom" that occurred during that very time. You should consider why were Americans having so many babies in such a short span of time after World War II. Some historians believe the "baby boom" reflected an increased optimism.

Finally, consider the 1952 Election of Eisenhower. Why did the American people change from Democrat leadership to Republican? Was it related to the 1948 recession?
