Do most American's want a third political party?

Thomas Snitzer yesterday announced the formation of the New Bull Moose Party. You guessed it their candidate for President is none other than?

For those of you who haven't cracked a book in a while, Teddy Roosevelt ran under the banner of the Bull Moose Party in 1912 as an independent and got beaten by Woodrow Wilson (the biggest anti-Semite, racist dirtbag that ever occupied the Oval Office).

Over the past couple of weeks, two candidates — Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West — have both announced that they'll be running as independents in the 2024 presidential election.

More options

The news comes as a poll from Gallup, published on October 4th, found that 63% of respondents believed that the US political system would benefit from a third major party — the highest figure for the last 20 years — as the Republican and Democrat campaigns ramp up ahead of the November 2024 election.

Interestingly, this sentiment isn't entirely new — 50-60% of US adults have typically expressed a similar desire for a third party, although no such party has stepped forward as a credible contender. In fact, the last time a third party truly emerged was over 165 years ago when the Republican Party supplanted the Whigs in what political historians call a realigning election. Ever since then, however, it’s strictly been a two-horse race.
