Populism:  wikipedia

Populism is a political doctrine where one sides with "the people" against "the elites".[1] While for much of the twentieth century, populism was considered to be a political phenomenon mostly of Latin America and India, since the 1980s populist movements and parties have enjoyed degrees of success in First World democracies such as the United States of America, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, and Scandinavian countries.

The terms populist and populism are also often used as prejoratives by political parties and politicians against their opponents who claim that they are merely only empathising with the public, (usually through rhetoric or proposals) to increase their appeal across the political spectrum.[2]
