Comparison of the 2016 Democrat and Republican Platforms
"While platforms are non-binding documents, research shows they matter—significantly. One study found that in the past 30 years, Republicans in Congress voted for positions supported by their party platform 89 percent of the time, while Democrats did so at a rate of 74 percent. If Republicans and Democrats in Congress make good on their party platforms’ promises, people of faith heading to the polls in November can be confident that Republicans will defend life, marriage, and religious liberty, while Democrats will continue to put those same values under direct assault.
The difference between the two parties’ platforms could not be clearer on values issues."
This Family Research Council piece shows the stark difference in the two parties’ platforms on Marriage, Abortion, Religious Freedom, Education, Military, and more.
