Stephen Douglas was the presidential candidate running against Abraham Lincoln. Douglas was well known as a resourceful party leader, and skillful tactician in debate and passage of legislation. He was a champion of the Young America movement which sought to modernize politics and replace the agrarian and strict constructionist orthodoxies of the past. Douglas was a leading proponent of democracy, and believed in the principle of popular sovereignty: that the majority of citizens should decide contentious issues such as slavery and territorial expansion. Yet, he lost to Lincoln.
