Jackson was well liked and people saw him as someone that related easily to the common man. That is why he was voted as the next president. Today, people think that, “Andrew Jackson was surely one of the most controversial of all of America’s first Presidents.” Jackson was seen as such a controversial president because of his stand on pro-slavery and anti-Indians. Many of the treaties and policies that he had created during his presidency had the most lasting impact because they did not seem to benefit most of the majority of the people, just the rich white males. During Jackson’s presidency, he passed treaties such as the Treaty of 1814 with the Creeks.
Henry VII had been a skilled diplomat and kept England out of major European conflicts. Therefore, Henry VIII inherited a state that was united behind the monarch, a state that had a decent European reputation, a monarchy that was wealthier than it had been for centuries, nobility that had been tamed and made to work for the Crown and a system of government that was competent and effective. Weaknesses Henry VIII inherited Henry VII was unpopular with his subjects as he took a lot of money away from the people of England. His Tax Collectors, Empson and Dudley were also unpopular due to their tactics of getting more money. All were greedy.
Lincoln, unlike his popularity, he had extreme curves in his life graph because he had some problems in the childhood, the school, and even the marriage. However, after that was a little bit different. Including Lincoln, four men had same flow in their lives. They all studied law and politics and supported opposition to the slavery.

I believe however that Truman did the most to help the civil rights campaign. That's not to say Eisenhower did not help, he just did less than Truman in my opinion. Following the sudden death of President Roosevelt, Truman had to step up and fill his shoes, not an easy task. Roosevelt was a well-liked president and had chosen Truman as his Vice President due to him never publicly making racist remarks. Truman did however have his own private views on black people.
Bellamy saw the select few who were wealthy as abusers of their power and money. He always portrays them as heartless. Another problem Bellamy describes are the selfishly motivated people of his century. Not only did he find the wealthy to be selfish, he felt that the hard working lower class was working for the wrong reasons. He explains to the utopian world that where he came from people were motivated to work only because of fear of poverty, as opposed to bettering their community or pursuing their passions.
Wilson’s ‘comfy and complacent’ campaign did play in role in deciding the 1970 election in favour of the Conservatives but it was only a minor one. Much more important was the combination of mistrust by the public over Labour’s ability to control the economy and most importantly; Labour’s complete failure to control the Trade Unions and the fears that this brought with it. Even a Labour minister himself, Richard Crossman admits in Source C that a ‘final warning on the trade figures’ put voters off. Whilst Source A does attack Wilson for his ‘highly personalised campaign’ and his ‘presidential’ style leadership, it goes on to suggest that there is no clear reason for why people changed their minds and voted Tory at the last minute. Despite his ‘too relaxed and assured’ campaign Wilson was not to blame but instead it was a combination of ‘unfavourable trade figures’ and Enoch Powell that swung the vote.
Economically, he dominated the economic structure for his beliefs in the Bank of America being run by the wealthy. The Jacksonian Democrats were, to some extent, champions of the Constitution, democracy, liberty, and equality; in other ways, Jackson and his followers clearly failed to live up to their ideals. Certainly, many common working people were satisfied with Jackson's attempts to protect their equality of economic opportunity from the rich during the age of the market revolution. They believed that Jackson was a true success for the common man as is evident in 'The Working Men's Declaration of Independence" of 1829 (Doc. A).

Franklin, a democrat, was popular mostly because he was governor of New York at the time. During the developing Depression, Roosevelt argued that the tragedy occurred due to U.S economy’s mistakes that were also being struck by policies.
