The Democrats then convinced the Populists to vote for their candidate, William Jennings Bryan. Joining with the Democrats took away the support from the Republicans who had formed a political alliance with them in North Carolina.

What issue caused the populist party to be absorbed by the Democratic Party?

The populists were, for the most part, unelectable on a national level. Their strong anti-elite, pro-agrarian platform lead to a voter base consisting almost completely of white farmers. In 1896, the Democratic party picked up many of the populist party's platform points. Realizing this, the populist leadership began debating whether to run their own candidate in the presidential election or to endorse the more electable Democrat, William Jennings Bryan. After a heated debate, the party came out in support of Bryan. During the election, Bryan took most of the populist vote. Unfortunately for them, Bryan lost the election. The populists were severely demoralized by this, and began to fracture as groups left for the more stable democrats or fought to gain control of the party.

Why did the populist party decline in the late 1890s?

Although the Populists (People's Party) had electoral victories after their formation in 1892, the Democratic Party adopted similar platforms in 1896. That year, the party split over the support for Democratic presidential candidiate William Jennings Bryan. In the South , many of the populist supporters became Democrats. Although the party limped along for three more elections (1900, 1904, and 1908), it finished poorly in all three. Some Populists also joined the Socialist party.
