JQA was so unpopular his own vice president became Jackson's running mate in the next election. Jackson was essentially cheated out of the presidency because he had tied Crawford in electoral votes and won the popular vote (Adams came in third in both), yet the Speaker of the House Henry Clay struck a deal with Adams to make him president instead. Adams is clearly the villain.

You mean the guy whose orders killed thousands of Native Americans? Quincy was by no means great, but he was at least better than Jackson.
