dc.description.abstractThis paper will explore the nature of populism. I have chosen to study populism because of the interesting implications and applications it has at this particular point in U.S. history. The most important of these implications, in my eyes, is for the political Left in this country, and particularly for the Democratic Party. For a variety of reasons, some of which will be examined in this paper, the Democratic Party has reached, in the 1970s and 1980s, a period of dissensus, confusion, and stagnation. Despite their historic attempts at societal reform and their continuing rhetorical representation of the common citizen, the Democrats must confront the fact that they have succeeded in alienating a good deal of their traditional base.en_US
