Thomas Jefferson ran against the ardent Federalist, Charles C. Pickney in the 1804 election. The election was a landslide victory for Jefferson, and began the decreasing power of the Federalists who would never come into great power again.[1]

This was the first election where the President and Vice President were elected separately, after the fiascos that occurred in the previous two elections. Disgraced Vice President Aaron Burr was replaced on the Jefferson ticket by George Clinton.
