Which U.S.political party is the most powerful ?

Report as

They both generate about the same amount of money, which equates to power these days, but the republicans are more in lock-step with one another than are the democrats. The democrats are a mixed lot of liberal, moderates, conservatives, etc. but the GOP are all either conservative or extreme conservatives. The right has a well oiled propaganda machine as well that preaches the same message of anger and fear to keep their base motivated.
But society is shifting more and more to the left, states that were once solidly republican red are now going democrat. Virginia, Ohio, and Florida are all solidly purple and trending blue, and it's projected that Texas will be purple in 2016. So the future is bright if you're a democrat, but not so much for the republicans.

I wouldn't rely on Texas changing anytime soon. I just don't see that happening.

Texas purple? Only if illegal aliens can vote.

At the current time, the Democrats hold the Senate and the presidency, and thus hold 2/3 of the legislative power. The Supreme Court is more or less equally divided, tilting slightly to the right. Obama has appointed enough career diplomats and deputy assistants that both the State Department and many of the regulatory bodies are staffed by liberals, so I think it's fair to say that the Democrats have more power. But this is a moving target, and the gods of power generally don't favor one party for longer than 10 to 15 years.

Money wise, the Republican. Big Business has a tendency to side with them on issues, thus the donations are more substantial.

Democrats are the party of the people, republicans are the party of corporations and the rich. Democrats are more inclusive, republicans are required to pass a purity test. As the demographics change it will strengthen the democrats grip on power.

The democrats. They work together and for the most part are on the same page. They have done a wonderful job catering to the poor, minorities an women while painting the GOP as bigots who despise anyone who isn't and old, rich, white, Christian and a male. Currently the GOP is disorganized, fighting amongst themselves. The GOP must rid their party of the progressives, liberals, RINO's and establishment republicans.

Republicans have purged there party of anyone that doesn't take an extreme point of view on social issues. By doing so they have reduced themselves to a southern regional party,with a base that consist of old white men, as long as the party remains exclusive they will continue to loose the WH.

Wow, there's a non biased and non judgmental opinion. I don't live in the south, anywhere around "rednecks" and I'm a conservative.

Not being judgmental the fax bear this out your party is not inclusive

They're not my party. You don't know me so how on earth can you assume I'm a republican. I switched to libertarian after Romney won the GOP nomination. I won't join the democrat party filled with progressives. And I abandoned the GOP since they promote and nominate fools like McCain, Bush Jr and Romney. The party has gone down the toilet.
