Does America Need a Third Major Political Party? — Survey of the Day

Ross Perot
Alex Wong

Not since the days of Ross Perot has a third party candidate received enough support to be included in the presidential debates. But does America suffer from its lack of a third major political party?

According to a new survey from Gallup of 1,017 adults, the public is split on the need for an alternative to the Democrats and the Republicans.

Forty-six percent of the poll’s respondents answered that American could use a third major party, whereas 45 percent responded the current two party system does an adequate job representing voters.

Support for a third party is down from 2010, when 58 percent were in favor of one.
