In the episode 'Two Bad Neighbours' Bush senior moved into the house opposite the Simpsons, and there was a feud between him and Homer. But this doesn't make Homer a Democrat.
I would say that Lisa is a Democrat and the rest of the family are apolitical.
In one episode the aliens Kong and Kang took over the electoral process and offered America a choice between two candidates with exactly the same policy, bowing down and acceping the alien takeover of the world.

I've now seen the clip and it's part of the running joke where the Simpsons make fun of Fox TV.

Handlerfan pretty much hit the nail on the head.

Lisa is definitely liberal, whereas everyone else is mostly neutral. Some of the richer characters are republican, and they make fun of that, but that's about the extent the make fun of republicans. Other than that, they constantly attack FOX news.

I haven't seen the show in quite some time, so I can't really remember how often they delved into politics. However, I never really felt like they were pushing an agenda, except for hating FOX.

They had an episode where Homer voted for Obama, but the machine recorded a dozen votes for McCain. No prizes for guessing what's his political stance.

^Then this round of elections they made one where Homer votes for Romney and is rewarded by seeing his tax returns.

Fact followed fiction in the 2012 election where a voting machine recorded a vote for Romney everytime a woman voted for Obama.

Funny thing about American Dad and Family Guy.

Family Guy started off as being a regular comedy show with only the occasional political gag. American Dad started off as a comedy show based on politics. Now, it seems the roles have been reversed. Later Family Guy episodes seem to revolve more around politics, where American Dad now has very little to do with politics. At least, that's what it seems.
