Democratic Party

The Democratic Party is one of two major political parties in the United States. It was founded in 1828 by Andrew Jackson.

Strongest on the coasts and in urban cities, the Democrats have had 16 presidents in the White House, from the 7th US president, Andrew Jackson, to Barack Obama, the country's 44th president. Some claim it is the oldest political party still in existence.
