  • This deal was called the "corrupt bargain" by Jackson and his followers.
  • During the election of 1828, both the Democrat-Republicans and National Republicans ended up mudslinging, or resulting to insulting and hurting other candidates' reputations.
  • No! You're mean and ugly!
  • The "corrupt bargain" made president Adams unpopular and caused many of his policies to be turned down. He was not to be re-elected for a second term. The election of 1828 was the first American election that focused on personalities rather than actual issues. It also showed the influence of the common man, as Jackson won by a landslide.
  • You're the corrupt bargain guy? No.
