comment How did people decide which president to vote for 200 years ago?
Very complex question; 200 years ago candidates did not campaign for office - their allies & supporters did. It would have been unseemly to actually seek office. There is useful material is most Federalist History books. Madison's election to congress might be particularly useful.
