Demand for a Third Party Hits New Highs

Here’s an interesting poll from Gallup:

“Amid the government shutdown, 60% of Americans say the Democratic and Republicans parties do such a poor job of representing the American people that a third major party is needed. That is the highest Gallup has measured in the 10-year history of this question. A new low of 26% believe the two major parties adequately represent Americans.”

It might just be due to my personal biases and the fact that I feel like neither party really represents my views all that well, but I am not one bit surprised by this poll.  It will never happen because the duopoly controlling American politics won’t let it, but it’s a nice thought given the fact that we don’t even have a functional government at the moment.
