What is the diffrence between federalist and democratic republican?

Answer #1


There are many definitions of federalist…I have a political science degree and I can’t decipher what you’re asking. I could just be really tired…but there are many, many definitions of federalists.

  • In Europe a federalist is sometimes a proponent of:

    • Greater regional autonomy within a country (especially in states such as Switzerland and Belgium).
    • Greater integration, centralisation or supranationalism within the European Union.


* Statesmen and public figures supporting ratification of the proposed Constitution of the United States between 1787 and 1789. The Federalist Papers are documents associated with their movement.

In contemporary usage, federalists advocate the principle of greater regional autonomy within the United States.

So if you could tell me which federalist you’re talking about, I can try to help you out.
