Jacksonian Democracy

In 1824, Jackson ran for president against 3 other candidates, one in which was John Quincy Adams. Jackson won most of the votes but not more than 50%, so the House of Representative got to choose who was going to be president. Henry Clay negotiated a deal with Adams, know as the corrupt bargain. People felt that their voice wasn't heard and started expanding suffrage before the election of 1828. With the suffrage expanded to all white males, Jackson won the election. This event was known as the Jacksonian Democracy.
