In 1844, the United States chose James Polk over Martin Van Buren in the 1844 presidential election. People thought van Buren believed in dictatorship and was not fair, especially with Mexico.[source?] People also were on Polk's side because he had a good sense of leadership and was fair with everyone and tried to ignore Mexico when he had nothing to do with them.[source?]
