True, populism is a political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups

Its goal is not to improve their lot.
It goal is not to improve democratic representation.
It's goal is to appeal and thereby gain power. The less a populist says about what they intend to do, the freer their hand should they get power.
