The Democratic Party is one of the two major political parties in the United States. The Democrats' roots can be traced back to Thomas Jefferson and James Madison’s Democratic-Republican party, also making it the oldest political party. Considered to the be the oldest and still-active political party, the Democratic logo of a donkey can be traced back to the 1870's and cartoonist Thomas Nast. While popular and recognized as a Democratic symbol, the donkey has never been formally adopted as the party’s logo.
