After Andrew Jackson lost the 1824 election to John Quincy Adams, Jackson's campaigners prepared for the 1828 election. Jackson's supporters wanted to make sure that this time that Andrew Jackson decisively won the electoral vote. The campaign was full of namecalling and slanders. Jackson now had a new advantage; all whites in the south could now vote regardless of property.[1]
