Democratic Party officials often trace its origins to the inspiration of the Democratic-Republican Partyfounded by Thomas JeffersonJames Madison and other influential opponents of the Federalists in That party also inspired the Whigs and modern Republicans.

The Democratic-Republican Party came to power in the election of The era of one-party rule in the United States, known as the Era of Good Feelingslasted from until the early s, when the Whig Party became a national political group to rival the Democratic-Republicans.
However, the Democratic-Republican Party still had its own internal factions. They split over the choice of a successor to President James Monroe and the party faction that supported many of the old Jeffersonian principlesled by Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Burenbecame the modern Democratic Party.

They sought to restore the independence of the individual—the artisan and the ordinary farmer—by ending federal support of banks and corporations and restricting the use of paper currency, which they distrusted.
Their definition of the proper role of government tended to be negative, and Jackson's political power was largely expressed in negative acts. He exercised the veto more than all previous presidents combined. Jackson and his supporters also opposed reform as a movement.
Reformers eager to turn their programs into legislation called for a more active government.

They believed, for instance, that public schools restricted individual liberty by interfering with parental responsibility and undermined freedom of religion by replacing church schools.

Although Republicans won all but two presidential elections, the Democrats remained competitive.

Tilden and Grover Clevelandwho represented mercantile, banking and railroad interests; opposed imperialism and overseas expansion; fought for the gold standard ; opposed bimetallism ; and crusaded against corruption, high taxes and tariffs.Sectional conflict over the expansion of slavery erupted after the Mexican War, was quieted by the Compromise of , and erupted again with the Kansas-Nebraska Act of American expansion of the s was resolutely tied to the question of slavery.
