Why a Donkey?

During the 1828 presidential campaign, some of Andrew Jackson’s opponents referred to him as a jackass. Jackson immediately started to use sketches of this determined creature on his campaign posters- thus the logo for the party was created.

Brave, Smart & Determined

In 1870, Thomas Nast used a donkey in a political cartoon to represent the Democratic Party. His famous political cartoon appeared in Harper’s Weekly. Democrats refer to the donkey as both brave and smart.
