The National Democratic Party is one of two major and around a dozen smaller political parties in the United States. The party's members are voters nationwide that identify with and support the basic principles of the party.
Individual candidates, voters, and elected officials may all have different viewpoints on any given issue, but in modern times Democrats have always stood for an economy that benefits all Americans as well as equality and civil rights.
The Democratic Party is organized into a national committee, a state committee in each state, and numerous regional committees.
