    The Democratic Republican Party was the precursor of the Modern day Democrat Party. The party grew out of the anti-Federalist sentiments of men like Thomas Jefferson which originally focused on the proper power and relative authority of the Federal and State governments.

    The Democratic Republicans (who generally referred to themselves simply as "Republicans" prior to 1820) favored the state governments over the Federal, the small yeoman farmer over city dwellers, and opposed both the Federal Court system and the National Bank.
