More than any of his predecessors, Jackson exercised executive authority to implement his policies and thwart the opposition. He vetoed a dozen bills, more than had all previous presidents combined, and was the first chief executive to exercise the pocket veto, by which a bill passed within 10 days (excluding Sundays) before Congress adjourns does not become law if the president does not sign it. He grew powerful in office through effective use of the spoils system, domination of the party convention, and appeals to the common people. He was a founder of the modern presidency.
