US Elections 2012: Democratic party history - an animated guide

In the first in a series of animations on the US elections, we look at how the 'look after whitey' Democrat party of the late 18th century, with its roots in the south, became the bunch of book-reading granola heads we know today. There was the party split on slavery in 1861 that allowed the Republicans to come from obscurity to enter the White House. There was the resurgence under Woodrow Wilson (let's skim over his racist views for now) and Franklin D Roosevelt, but the party appears to have lost the white south forever

• Voiced by the Mighty Boosh star Rich Fulcher
