It still took until the '80s to undermine what FDR had put in place. Bill Clinton really drove the stake through the heart of the New Deal philosophy with his confirmation of Reagan's themes of the end of welfare, etc. and new found disdain for unions. But he was such a relief after Ronnie and G.H.W. that I and most Democrats didn't appreciate the consequences of what he had done, even if we took issue with those things.
Too soon old, to late wise.

The US has a long history of ignoring popular mobilization, on both sides of the aisle, and is a different kettle of fish. It took a good 20 or 30 years for the loony right to really take over the Republican party, after all.
