The Populist Party was a political party in the United States between 1984 and 1996. It was conservative and often white nationalist in its ideology. The party was unrelated to the original American Populist Party or other American parties that have used the same name. Willis Carto helped found the Populist Party, which eventually served as an electoral vehicle for Ku Klux Klan member David Duke. In 1984, athlete and minister Bob Richards ran for president. By 1996, the party had collapsed. It did not nominate any candidates for the 1996 presidential election (running mate Maureen Salaman).wiki
