    One of the most obvious examples of a feedback reaction against Populism in American law is the adoption of the 18th Amendment (Prohibition), in 1919, and its subsequent repeal, in 1933, via the 21st Amendment.

    Prohibition and Populism overlapped as political movements. For example, a prohibitionist leader won the Populist party nomination in the Governor race in Georgia, without objection, on August 7, 1896.
