Andrew Jackson first run for office was a loss. Then, a democratic expansion occurred that was called “Jacksonian Democracy.”

They wanted more white men involved in politics

When Jackson ran again, his supporters called themselves the Democratic Party. John Quincy Adams ran as the Republican candidate.
  • He won against Adams this time because his campaign focused on the candidates personalities. Andrew Jackson was thought as the common man and people thought he could relate to them.
