As in 1888, the tariff issue was a key difference between free market Democrats and protectionist Republicans. Another issue, though, was the gold standard, with the Populists putting their chief emphasis on demanding higher inflation through increased coinage of silver, which would benefit debtors such as Southern and Western farmers. Cleveland's strong adherence to "hard" money gained him more backing from Eastern bankers and business. Year 1888 (MDCCCLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Sunday (click on link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a leap year starting on Friday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ... For other uses, see Gold standard (disambiguation). ...


Another issue was labor, with a major strike at Carnegie Steel ending with fighting between picketers and armed guards that galvanized labor opposition to the Republican administration.


While the Populists did take several states in the West, the South remained Democratic and the industrial Northeast turned out for Cleveland as well, giving him a solid victory and the Democrats control of both houses of Congress.
