Were the framers of the Constitution during the 20th century in the American colonies democrats or elitists, or both?

20th century? Don't you mean the 18th century?
What do you think the answer is? Why?

Yes, the 18th century is correct. I think they were both because some of the articles were basing on poor self interests.

I agree. The framers of the Constitution were elitists and democrats. They believed that every white man should be able to vote -- but excluded women and African-Americans from full citizenship.
