In a sense for the same reasons you just listed. Republicans liked his jingoism, his manliness, his "walk softly and carry a big stick," attitude. He was also a capitalist. While he did regulate the free market, he did not do so to the extent of later presidents (particularly the second President Roosevelt).

It's even easier to see why Democrats liked him. He was a progressive in a time when the Republican Party was the progressive party. He backed anti-trust legislation, was a conservationist and supported worker's rights.
