Best Answer

The Federalists were the name given the people who favored ratification of the United States Constitution. The Constitution established a "federal" system of government, hence the name. Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, and George Washington were just three examples of the many people at the time that favored the new Constitution. Following the ratification of the Constitution, one of the first political parties founded was also called the Federalist Party. MrV
