Support Grows for a Strong Third Party Option in US Politics

It’s no secret that the Republicans and Democrats are both heavily influenced by corporate money, Wall Street, rich donors and globalist agendas.

It’s also no secret that Trump was a pushback against globalism and a rallying cry for the forgotten men and women who feel sickened by those who have taken over this country’s media, finances, foreign policy and government.

What’s less well known is just how many people actually now want a large third party option and are no longer buying into the red team or the blue team.

New Gallup Poll Shows Growing Support for Third Party

The new Gallup poll shows that around 67% of US adults want a third party and consider the Democrats and Republicans to have been doing “such a poor job representing the American people that a third party is needed.”

This is the largest percentage of people who wants a third party in decades and it also has another massive statistic which is that 50 percent of those polled consider themselves to be independents and are not supporters of the Democratic or Republican party.

Fully 70 percent of independents overall support a third party, including a rapidly rising number of Republicans. This is because many Republicans are angry about how the party treated President Trump and how people like Mitch McConnell and Representative Liz Cheney are getting on their high horses to pretend to be some moral voice against the MAGA movement.

Democratic Voters’ Support for a Third Party is Declining

At the same time as support for a third party grows among independents and Republicans, it’s declining among Democrats. This is no real surprise, since Democrats are now in lockstep around a progressive agenda and Green New Deal fixation led by their Trojan horse Joe Biden.

Biden has managed to largely bring the party together by placating the radical left base and spouting their rhetoric while still glad-handing with the big donors, arms companies and Wall Street executives who power the corporate heart of the Democratic machine.

As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said last year, in “any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party.”

But they are, and the Squad and Biden both have their own cynical reasons for staying in the same party and using each other for their own agendas. Spoiler alert: both agendas are very bad for this country and for Americans.

Can Third Parties Really Work?

The question on many people’s minds is simple: can third parties actually work? The answer is: sort of, kind of, sometimes. Conventional wisdom would have it that third parties just tend to split the vote and would just hand Democrats a permanent majority in this case (if they don’t achieve it first by importing immigrants and illegal aliens first).

However, the history of third parties has shown that they have important roles to play in American history including in helping end slavery, get more respect for workers and help lessen the power of creepy cults (the Anti-Masonic party led the charge on that one).

At the end of the day the truth is that a third party is still definitely a long shot and would probably split the vote at this point. The important thing to note here is that the growing support for a third party among independents and Republicans shows that the mainstream and establishment parties can’t assume they have popular support anymore.

There will be no more blank checks from voters for parties who put banks above people, open borders above citizens, unneeded wars above peace, race baiting above patriotism and rhetoric above reality.
