According to Gallup, both of the primary parties have lower than a 50% approval rating. http://www.gallup.com...

So how is it that other parties have not been able to get in the game? Why do they still vote for these parties that they don't like? Perhaps a better question, why do YOU?

It's not about home much you like the political party but how much you dislike the other party. Third party candidates general don't stand a chance, because people feel as If its a waste of a vote to vote for third party, and thus a fulfilling prophecy occurs.If your disappointed with politics so much, your more likely not to vote then to vote third party.

It's pretty much confirmed in political science that a majority voting system leads to a two party system.
