In that case they trumped up Theodore Roosevelt to campaign heavily for Taft. They also had to fight him tooth and nail in the 1896 election.

Ross Perot may have been one of those true outside candidates - far more contrarian than Trump. With Perot you saw that he meant to torpedo not only NAFTA, but other globalist ideas. Obviously the electoral college virtually guarantees a two-party, but in reality a one-party system. Sure - the guys on the right, become more left later, but I can virtually guarantee you that the Republican party of 2050 will be the Democrat party of 2010. The pendulum swings ever more to the left where they intended to go with it anyhow. The goal is a mix between a cultural marxist system and a big-corporate economic one - that is before the fully engineered Brave New World comes around in the next century.

I don't see how you can call William Jennings Bryan an anti-establishment candidate in 1908. It was the third time that he ran. He had lost all three times, with his percentage of the popular vote dropping every time.

You might have called him that back in 1896 though. Bryan was also nominated by the Populist Party in 1896. He came out of nowhere and was only 36 years old.

The election of 1896 was a big turning point though. It was when the Blue Team forever abandoned the free-market ideals of Grover Cleveland.

It is also significant that at the time the Blue Team nominee also had to get 2/3 of the vote at the nominating convention. Realistically, it's hard to call anyone who gets 2/3 of the vote "anti-establishment." If you can get that many votes, you already are the establishment. It took five ballots to nominate Bryan in 1896.
