The Democrats and Republicans have long held the most power in American politics. If a candidate wants to run for political office his or her best bet for election would be to run as one or the other. Third parties haven’t been able to effectively compete with either Democrats or Republicans with any consistency. Would adding a third party to the mix make the government more efficient and responsive to voters? Or would it only increase the acrimony that now afflicts the Democrats and Republicans?
