What Are the Main Beliefs of the Democratic Party?

According to Democrats.org, as of 2015, the core beliefs of the Democratic Party are “that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules.” Another belief Democrats hold is that people are greater together than alone.

The website also states that the party is focusing on “building an economy that lifts up all Americans, not just those at the top.” Interests of the party include equal pay, job creation, health care, education and clean energy. Democrats.org features more detailed information on the party’s stance on specific issues. Civil rights, education, immigration reform, national security and voting rights are a few of the issues selectable on the bottom of the Democrats.org homepage for more information.

The official website for the party offers information about the Democratic Party’s core beliefs, but individual Democratic politicians have their own interpretations of these beliefs as well as personal stances on hot-button current issues. OnTheIssues.org provides information on the stances of current politicians. The website features recent quotes from politicians from the Democratic and other U.S. political parties. The quotes are found by navigation through issue names and categories, or by searching by certain politicians’ names.
