  • The Elections of 1824 and 1828
  • We all want to be President!
  • Jackson Wins Popular Vote
  • Gentlemen, calm down! The electoral college decides the president! I´m sure you will be happy with their decision.
  • No one Wins Majority
  • None of the candidates got a majority of the votes!
  • I am sorry to inform you that the electoral college has not decided the next President of the Unites States.
  • WHY?!
  • The election of 1824 was a race between Henry Clay, John Q. Adams, and Andrew Jackson that resulted in a useless presidency. This opened the door for the next president to make a landslide win.
  • ¨Corrupt Bargain¨
  • House of Representatives! The burden of deciding our next president falls on us! Vote for Adams- he would be a great president!
  • During the election of 1824 Andrew Jackson won the popular vote, people´s vote, but the vote that decides the next president is the Electoral College.
  • Mudslinging and the People´s Candidate
  • Jackson is a mule! He is stubborn and close-minded!
  • The Electoral College vote determines the next president by who gets the majority of the votes. In this case no candidate got the majority, so the House of Representatives decides.
  • Jackson Wins
  • Congratulations sir! I am so honored that an ordinary farmer like myself has been allowed in your office! I guess you really are the president of the people!
  • Henry Clay made a deal with John Q. Adams that said if Adams would make him the Secretary of State, Clay would use his influence as the Speaker of the House to get Adams elected. When this was successful Jackson's supporters called this deal the ¨Corrupt Bargain¨.
  • That is a pretty good speech. Just make sure to mention that I, John Quincy Adams, would be a better candidate than Jackson! Say it like you mean it, the position of Secretary of State is on the line!
  • In the election of 1828 a new way of campaigning had risen called mudslinging. Mudslinging is using a candidates personal life to make him look worse in the eyes of the people in order to win, but the people loved Andrew Jackson. Jackson was the peoples candidate and people thought he represented the ordinary man.
  • Adams was a terrible president! Think of all I could accomplish for the ordinary citizen! The mule is strong!
  • The elections of 1824 was a battle between Henry Clay, John Q. Adams, and Andrew Jackson that resulted in a ¨Corrupt Bargain¨ and shadow over Adams´ presidency. The results of the 1824 election led into the election of 1828 that left Jackson as president of an admiring country.
  • I am so proud to be here, in the oval office, as the President of the United States of America!
