Democratic Party

The Democratic Party is one of the two major political parties in the United States, along with the Republican Party

After losing the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, the Democrats returned to the White House with the victory of Joe Biden in the November 3, 2020 election. Biden, who represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009 and served as vice president from 2009 to 2017, during the Barack Obama administration, defeated Trump by garnering 306 Electoral College votes versus 232. He was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States on January 20, 2021. His vice president, Kamala Harris, is the first woman to serve in that role in American history.

In the 2020 congressional elections, Democrats lost 13 seats in the House of Representatives but retained their majority in the chamber. In the Senate, Democrats gained a total of 50 seats, taking control of the chamber, with vice president Kamala Harris breaking ties.

1.The party platform

The Democratic Party's platform focuses on social justice, civil and voting rights, environmentalism, the working class. The party platform demands fair wages, as Democrats believe this is the key to upward economic mobility. Democrats also believe in comprehensive tax reform that ensures America's wealthiest citizens, and corporations pay their "fair share".

Access to affordable health care is a staple of the party platform. Democrats are vocal supporters of further reforms in the areas of women's rights, minority rights, LGBT, and voting rights. They believe climate change is a threat to the planet and future and advocate for reforms and regulations that slow down and reverse the effects of climate change.

The Democratic immigration stance centers around amnesty and a pathway to citizenship for law-abiding undocumented immigrants living in the country. They believe in immigration reform that will let those wanting to emigrate to America do so more easily.
