The Jacksonian Era was from 1828 through 1840. It was the time where voting in states jumped dramatically in response to this election. There was a lot of talk over whether Andrew Jackson was a president for the people or for his own power. His own personal belief of what democracy had to offer was that he rejected Jefferson’s belief that ordinary citizens could be educated to determine the right and instead though that they should know what was right by instinct. The voting requirements changed causing a huge jump in 1828. Jackson also placed his sympathies within the plain citizens; the farmers, clergymen, and common worker.
