Majority Want a Third Party

A new Gallup poll finds that 58% of Americans believe a third party is needed because they are dissatisfied with the two current parties, the highest level Gallup has recorded since 2003.

"Though the rise in support for a third party could be linked to the Tea Party movement, Tea Party supporters are just about average in terms of wanting to see a third party created. Sixty-two percent of those who describe themselves as Tea Party supporters would like a third major party formed, but so do 59% of those who are neutral toward the Tea Party movement. Tea Party opponents are somewhat less likely to see the need for a third party."
