Thomas Jefferson won the election of 1800 due to his strong Democratic - Republican Party, Major support of the majority of the 16 states, and friendly help from the federalist Alexander Hamilton. Jefferson was able to win his election in 1800 due to the strong Democratic – Republican Party that he founded in 1792 with James Madison and was able to use the dominant political party to help get support from states. The election was in the hand of the states in which Jefferson had most of the support, but in the middle it was a tie and it was up to the Federalist Party (House of Representative) to choose the winner of the tie between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr in which Jefferson had a friend name Alexander Hamilton to help him out from the Federalist party. Alexander Hamilton was the one that formed the Federalist Party and liked Jefferson more than Burr, so then the Federalist Party chooses Jefferson in which turns the tie to Jefferson be the winner of the seat for president. Thomas Jefferson was a person that had many supports from other opponent in which led him to winning the election of 1800 and making America a better place to live.
