Sentence: "Anti-incumbency is building up against/on XYZ party"


My question: What preposition would be correct to use in the sentence? I've seen both prepositions being used in the past, therefore, I'm asking. XYZ could by any political party.

Thanks and regards

Against. I think using "on" may be caused by a confusion with the often used phrase "building upon, or on."
