The 2 movements dealt with the fact of people’s dissatisfaction with the government and how they had to deal with it based on the, addressing problems of the day. The progressive movement realized that they had a great experience as they achieved it by comparing their objectives to the populist movement. Populist was a movement that focused mainly on the economic, social, political problems that happened in the United States. The populist was in the 19th century to where the progressive was in the 20th century to where the urban middle class was against the political system in which they believed had corrupted and was being electable through unfair elections. They both had different approaches to where they wanted to have more importance on how to deal with the problems. The progressive era was a time when the wide-ranging caused the movement to vary based on the activists and the reformers that were from a diverse background with many different agendas that word then pursue their goals of a better America. With the Progressive they pushed for the Democratic return that affected the federal government that was to achieve a better representation of the state in which the U.S Congress could lobby for the approval of the 17th amendment that then replaced the previous system for having the state legislators choose senators. By the 1896 Democratic presidential candidate date received significant support from the populist party that was among the leading progressives who campaigned this case, and that was William Jennings Bryan.
