Support for brand-new, viable third party hits all-time high

The percentage of Americans who are so dissatisfied with two-party politics that they think a new, viable party is a good idea has risen to a record high 62%, according to a Gallup poll.

Americans believe the existing “parties do such a poor job representing the American people that a third party is needed,” Gallup said.

That’s up from 57% in September, before the 2020 presidential election after which the parties battled over the legitimacy of the vote.

Only 33% think the two major political parties adequately represent the public.

The survey was done just before recent reports of officials from prior Republican administrations considering an anti-Trump third party.

Only 37% of Americans have a favorable view of the Republican Party while 48% approve of the Democratic Party.
