The Election of 1832

In this video, the issues and outcomes related to the U.S. presidential election of 1832 are discussed. One of the primary issues had to do with whether or not there should be a national bank of the U.S. Jackson was staunchly opposed to this. Jackson said that the bank was anti-west and anti-American. Westward migration was very popular, so this view won Jackson support. The election of 1832 also included the first true third party in American history. The introduction of this third party split the vote of the National Republicans (not today’s Republican party), allowing Jackson to win by huge margins.
