Why was andrew jacksons election viewed as a victory for the common people?

Question asked by: knowitall

This is because, as a Scotch-Irish immigrant, Jackson was the first of the American presidents who came from genuinely humble beginnings.

Up until then no-one like him had been elected to such a lofty office, and therefore this was regarded as a victory for common people as one of their own, as it were, had become President.
