He won his first term after losing the popular vote and the electoral vote by means of political maneuvering in the House. During the four-years he was in office, the Jackson supporters were building a solid political party and preparing for the next election. Jackson returned to the Senate and improved his credentials. Pro-Jackson newspapers constantly ran editorials against Adams and for Jackson.

Western expansion continued given Jackson's natural power base more votes.
