Historic Overview

The name of three specific political parties in American history. (A) The Populist Party of 1891-1908 was an outgrowth of the agricultural unrest of the late nineteenth century. The party advocated stronger action by the government in protecting the workers against the railroad monopoly, inflating the dollar through increased production of paper money and silver coinage, and a general "good government" platform. The Populists gained control of several states in the 1892 election, and in 1894 it fused with the minority party to gain control of other states. The party was particularly partial to U.S. Rep. Wm Jennings Bryan of Nebraska, nominating him for President in 1896. This decision led to a split in the party, which resulted in most Populists joining the Democrats. Remnants of the party appeared on the ballot until 1908. (2) A right-wing political party of the 1980s. This political party attempted to gather the remnants of the old George Wallace parties into one national organization (unsuccessfully). (3) A short-lived liberal political party organized by Ralph Nader to foster his campaign for President in 2004.
