Why is the Democratic Party better than republicans?
they are not. the republican have ruled the office for a very long time, the democratic party is just getting attention because they have the first women and the first black man running for PREZ
Actually that answer is not accurate. The Republicans had the first black candidate, Alan Keyes, and also more women and minorities in office than the Democrats ever have - including women in prominent positions. Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves was a Republican. The Republican party is for smaller government, less taxes, and less spending and has always had far superior Presidents.
Most teachers are Democrats because they are not as educated as they would have you believe, and they are union members. They believe in getting something for nothing - and that everyone should be treated the same no matter how much they contribute (socialism and communism also teach this). Because the education system has been heavily infiltrated by socialists, communists, liberals and democrats, they are teaching young people that the democratic party is better. History PROVES otherwise, and democrats will be the undoing of the constitution and all American freedoms if they are allowed to continue to go unchecked.
federalists believed the government was better than the democratic republicans did
The Democratic Party is 'run' by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) which writes the party platform and organizes the party conventions - that is usually what is used to refer to the entire party (even though there are separate state operations). Similar language is used for the Republicans (RNC). You will see occasional reference to Republicans as the GOP (Grand Old Party) but that is more of a historical reference than working acronym. The Democratic… Read More

The Federalist Party believed in a strong national (federal) government with powers over the state governments. The Democratic-Republicans believed that states should have more power than the national government. This is known as the States' Rights theory.
He cant be. Thomas Jefferson was a Democratic Republican. Thomas Jefferson began as an Anti-Federalist. During the Presidency of George Washington, he was a member of the 'Opposition' faction. Eventually he joined the Republican party - not to be mixed up with the Republican party that was established 1856-today. These republicans were referred to as 'Democrats' by the Federalists, who thought their ideals were more mob-rule than true republicanism. Today they are sometimes called the… Read More
The Democratic Party believes that people are better together than they are alone. The Party believes that a country is more successful when everyone is treated equally and everyone works together.
Andrew Jackson was the leader of the first Democratic Party. Its main purpose was to elect Jackson president. It was more attuned to Jefferson's ideas than to Adams and made some claims to Jeffersonian democracy. The party split up and died before the Civil War. After the war ended, a new Democratic Party formed to oppose the Republicans.
What exactly was a Federalists point of view Were they more like Democrats or Republicans Did they support the constitution?
A Federalist was someone who believed in a strong central government. Federalists cannot really be compared to either Democrats or Republicans; Federalists were their own political party. However, since they opposed the Democratic-Republican party (later to become the Democratic party), they could possibly be associated more with Republicans, in that regard. They did support the Constitution, and favored a loose view of it, meaning that they used such devices as the Elastic Clause to give… Read More
Thomas Jefferson was a Democratic-Republican. *Although the party was not called the "Democratic Republicans" until around 1839. The party was initially called the Republicans (Different party than today's republicans) - but their opponents called them 'Democrats' insultingly. Eventually (after a few slight faction name shifts), the name was changed to "Democratic Republicans." *Thomas Jefferson was an anti-federalist, then a member of the Opposition (when George Washington was president), and -then- a Republican (Jeffersonian Republican) during… Read More
The Democratic Party has more members than the Republican Party.
Jefferson's party, the Democratic Republicans , believed more individual freedom and state's rights than did the opposition Federalists. They were against the alien and sedition acts. They were more willing to keep a loose federation of states than face the establishment of a strong federal government.
Kinda, Democrats belive in abortion which is a fundamental problem with the Church because they are pro-choice. Their community and socialist standings are more in Line with Catholic teachings than Republicans
Andrew Jackson was a Democrat-Republican, a specific political party at the time which is not exactly the same as either the Democratic or Republican party today (the names "democratic" and "republican" have been used historically for several actually rather different political parties) It's rather difficult to characterize him as either of today's main parties. If pressed, I'd say someone today with the same political ideals would probably be just about equally disliked by both parties… Read More

Not really. There is a group called the Stonewall Democrats, but it's function is quite different than Log Cabin Republicans, since the vast majority of the Democratic Party accepts gay people and gay rights. So there is no need need for a "log cabin" type of group. Not really.

No*, assuming you are talking about a "third party" in the sense of "a party other than the two major parties of the time". If you just mean a "party other than the modern day Republican or Democratic parties", then yes, there have several: George Washington had no party affiliation, and after him there have been 1 Federalist, 4 Democratic-Republicans, and 3 Whigs elected to office (a 4th Whig served as President, but only after… Read More
The reason they are more common is due to the fact they have existed longer than the third parties and thus get the most recognition. Additionally, the Democratic Party has aligned to it more workers and minority groups. This however, has not stopped the Republicans from winning federal government offices in the House, Senate or presidency.
A third party
Congress is made up of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The Republicans have a majority of House members. There are 435 House members, of these 241 are Republicans and 191 are Democrats a margin for the Republicans of 50 House members. The United States Senate has 100 members. The Democrats have a majority in the Senate with 51 Democratic Senators and two independents who caucus with the Democrats. There are 47 Republicans in… Read More
The Whig Party existed during the Presidency of Andrew Jackson - and were opposed to his policies and his Democratic Party. The Whigs strongly believed in the supremacy of Congress (rather than the President), and wanted modernisation. The party was dissolved when members had conflicting views about slavery - and most of the Northern Whigs joined the new Republican Party (which Lincoln belonged to and helped end slavery).
It depends on your views and experiences. No party is better than the other, though members of either party believe their party is the best - naturally. There is a balance and each party is necessary. You should do some research on issues important to you and see where each party stands and then make a decision as to which to belong to.
No more than Republicans. And at a much lesser rate than the Tea Party.
Guns are neither Democrat nor Republican. Democratic Party politicians and supporters have tended in general to favour stricter gun controls than their Republican counterparts, but opinion on the issue does not follow simple party lines, some Democrats opposing further control while some Republicans are in favour.
Assuming we say that a "millionaire" means anyone with a NET WORTH of more than $1 million, about 9% of the total number of households in the US qualify, as of the 2011 tax year. Surveys of people asking about wealth and party affiliations show that the Republican party outnumbers the Democratic party in that demographic. For instance, for those reporting an annual income of $150,000 or more (which is a good estimate of $1… Read More
Who believed that ultimate power should reside with state governments rather than the federal government were known as?
When there is an established two party system such as the one that currently exists in the United States, in which almost all politicians are elected from either the Democratic or the Republican parties, voters are rarely willing to vote for a third party because even if they like that party, they also know that either the Democrats or the Republicans are going to win, and their vote will have greater impact on the political… Read More
Slavery was the major issue in the 1856 election. Democratic Party candidate James Buchanan endorsed popular sovereignty giving the power to determine the legality of slavery to the inhabitants of the territory seeking statehood, rather than to Congress. The Republican Party opposed the extension of slavery into the territories. Buchanan warned that if the Republicans won the election, their anti-slavery position would lead to civil war.
I think the answer to that is Republicans.
John Adams was the chief Federalist. Thomas Jefferson was his counterpart in the Democratic Republican opposition. Adams' party pretty much died out after Adams lost his re-election bid. Jefferson's party went on to elect Madison and Monroe.so jeffersons were better than adams
What is the best explanation for the fact that Latinos have tended to favor Democratic party candidates in national elections?
A major reason Latinos favor Democratic candidates is immigration issues. In the 2012 election, the economy and jobs are top issues for Latinos, but a candidate's position on immigration can alienate Latinos. The Democrats almost always have a more favorable position on immigration than the Republicans do.
How do you explain the differences and similarities between the Federalist Party and Democratic-Republican Party?
George Washington himself wanted to avoid a party system in America. Unfortunately, even when saying this he was part of the beginning of one of the first parties in United States politics. There have been many different parties surface since the beginning of the American political system. They all have different thoughts, policies, and motivations. Each party has come and gone, some have made significant contributions and others have not. The first split, and beginning… Read More
The Democratic party favors gay rights more than the Republican party does.
Because the name of the party is and for more than a century has been the Democratic Party. The term "Democrat Party" is an intentional mispronunciation of that name, popularized by biased right-wing media including Fox News. No elected official of the Democratic Party, nor any member of its party leadership, has ever referred to "the Democrat Party." For some reason, some opponents of the Democratic Party derive their juvenile jollies from saying the name… Read More

Why would racist Dixiecrats from the Democratic Party leave the Democratic Party to join the Republican Party if it was the Republican Party that fought against racism from their beginning?
The Republican party of the 1950's and 60's was much different than the 1860's version. FDR's New Deal caused most African Americans to start moving to the Democrats; and after the GOP lost many elections because of the New Deal, it started moving to the right under leaders such as Senator Robert Taft. The Conservative Democrats from the South joined these Republicans in opposition to New Deal policies, and the modern parties as we know… Read More
Yes. The Democratic party didn't start until 1790 and the republican party didn't start until the civil war. Three independents have been elected president: George Washington, John Tyler and Andrew Johnson. However Tyler and Johnson later joined parties. One Federalist was elected: John Adams. Four Democratic-Republicans were elected president: Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Adams. Four Whigs were elected president: Harrison, Tyler, Taylor, Filmore. Compare that to 17 Republicans were elected president and 15 Democrats were elected… Read More
How have politics influenced constitutional interpretation of the law and the application of criminal procedure?
First and perhaps foremost, politics affects appointments to the justice system. Both political parties will do what it takes to get one of their own on the bench. Generally, judges from the Democratic party tend to be more lenient on criminals than Republicans.
Different beliefs than the republican parties.
The first president to be elected by the Democratic Party was Andrew Jackson. The Democratic Party arose from the earlier Democratic-Republican Party, and many Democrats see its beginnings there. The first president elected by the Democratic-Republican Party was Thomas Jefferson. The word "democrat," with a small 'd,' denotes a political process rather than a political party. So the question, without capitalization, asks who was the first democratically elected president; this was, of course, George Washington… Read More
They don't really want to start that particular spitting contest. It's posturing to make a gullible public believe that President Bush is as bad as Clinton. The Democrats are certainly ashamed of many of their fellow party members. Kennedy, Clinton, Byrd and a host of other Democrat politicians are an albatross to the party. They're doing whatever they can to sling mud in an attempt to convince the public that Republicans are just as bad… Read More

Lincoln was in the Republican Party (like the majority of the Northern States). However, the Republican Party during Lincoln's time was very different than the Republicans now.
If there is any ONE other party, it is usually called the 'Third Party' (in order to distinguish it from the first two).
As of 2013, there are more US voters registered as Republicans than as Democrats. But that doesn't mean everyone votes for their party affiliation. In 2010, self-identification of US registered voters was 52% Republican to 43% Democrat.
The current Tea Party is a loosely organized grass-roots political party which is more conservative than the Republican national leadership and which has recently become a problem for the Republicans by winning some primaries. Sarah Palin, who ran for VP in 2008 sometimes appears at tea party rallies which is also an embarrassment to the old line and moderate Republicans.
