From an NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll out this week:
46% Say they would like to see a third Party candidate (a solid number if you look at it in a 3 way contest with the two legacy Parties). And it seems to fall in line with a similar poll from 2007. 57% believe both parties are to blame for partisanship (I somewhat disagree).
Another example of why we need political alternatives. Unfortunately the current system will never allow any real choice when it comes to voting.
