Election of 1828
Though Jackson was unhappy with the results of the 1824 election, he put his efforts into courting voters for the 1828 race. John Quincy Adams' electoral success did not translate to the White House. Viewed by most Americans as cold, distant, and uninterested in the plight of average citizens, he was unpopular as he ran for a second term. This time, only two candidates were in the race: Adams and Jackson. Campaign rallies and slogans generated popular support for Jackson. The 1828 election spared no punches and observed no boundaries.
