Populism waves have always been an important political phenomenon historically and regionally. With the rise of populism worldwide, populist characteristics seem receding away from Latin America which gives an end to the third populism wave of this region, and more centre-right governments have revitalized. The main purpose of this study is to examine the mechanism of resurgence of the right, in the case of Argentina under Presidents Nestor and Cristina Kirchner, trying to answer why and how this change happened first in Argentina. Building an analytical frame by using QCA method through the analysis of four Indexes: party institutionalization index; corruption index; social inclusion index; globalization index, viewing this preliminary frame from demand and support sides of political power. I seek to uncover the ways in which populist ideologies driven the political performances and the outcomes of these specific policies on voters. This study points to see the center mechanism of the populist governments, also generate an analysis structure which can be applied to the most of Latin American leftist governments.
