ONLY FLIRT­ING WITH A THIRD PARTY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Many of us may like the idea of a third party, but that may not trans­late into much come election day. A new Gallup poll finds that 57 per­cent of Amer­i­cans say a third po­lit­i­cal party “is needed”; that in­cludes 51 per­cent of Repub­li­cans, 73 per­cent of in­de­pen­dents and 43 per­cent of Democrats. But there’s a catch.

“Only about one in 10 vot­ers cur­rently say­ing they will vote for a third-party can­di­date, Amer­i­cans’ ap­petite for a third party may not be as great as they say it is,” re­ports Gallup an­a­lyst Justin McCarthy.
