This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

-Populism on the rise around the world, evidenced by Donald Trump-Populism is about the masses of the people. Think “pop” music or “pop”ular-The voice of the ordinary, average person-Candidates speak in simple, understandable manners “plain speak”-Sometimes they use this “plain speak” too much. Like Donald Trump and the example he gave: Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte calling Obama the “son of a whore”-Anti-elite, anti-establishment: people are suspicious of mainstream politics like the US government, democratic party, republican party, even UN and EU-Populists are more than people who champion the common man-Populists aren’t just a right-wing phenomenon, and populism definitely isn’t a new thing-Leftist populists: Bernie Sanders, direct ALL anger UPWARDS, blame the corporate elites and crappy government. Pro labor, anti-government, anti-monopoly, think democrats are too accommodating on big corporations-This leftist ideology led to things like labor unions, there was even anti-immigration sentiment at one point.
