Did anti federalists want the states or central government to have more power?
Federalists favored the passage of the US Constitution. Anti-Federalists opposed passage because, among other things, they thought the Constitution gave too much power to the federal government at the expense of the state governments.

The ensuing discussion led to the Bill of Rights.

The Federalists wanted a strong central government. The Anti-federalists wanted restrictions on that government. Both sides saw the need for a stronger government than was provided by the Articles of Confederation. The Anti-federalists wanted to make sure that government would not trample over their rights as had King George III. (Basically the Federalists wanted the same thing. They did not want the new national government to trample over their rights either!) Since both sides wanted the exact same thing, a bill of rights was added to the constitution to prevent congress from acting like King George III.

The anti federalists did not want the Constitution ratified for it gave too much power to the national government at the expense of the state governments, there was no bill of rights, the national government could maintain an army in peacetime, Congress, because of the necessary and proper clause,' wielded too much power, and the executive branch held too much power. The federalists caved into one demand by establishing the "Bill of Rights." Basically, the anti federalists was all for states rights and did not want the federal government interfering.
