The New Popular Democratic Culture was a political movement that emerged in the United States in the early 19th century. It was characterized by a shift towards a more democratic and participatory political system, which emphasized the importance of the common man. This movement was fueled by the expansion of suffrage rights to white men who did not own property, which led to an increase in voter participation and political engagement.

The election of 1824 was the first presidential election to be held under this new political culture. It was marked by a significant increase in voter turnout, with more than twice as many people voting as in the previous election. The election also saw the emergence of new political parties, such as the Democratic Party, which was formed in response to the growing popularity of Andrew Jackson. The election was ultimately decided by the House of Representatives, which chose John Quincy Adams as the winner, despite the fact that Andrew Jackson had won the most popular and electoral votes. This decision was widely criticized as being undemocratic and led to calls for electoral reform.
