Independent voter demands more choices from Gallup

by Ryan Jaroncyk, published

Dear Gallup,

Seven months ago, you ran a poll which revealed that 58% of Americans and 74% of Independents supported the prospect of a third major political party.  However, despite subsequent polls demonstrating near or actual record low approval ratings for Republicans and Democrats in Congress, your esteemed organization has not run another third party survey.

As the fastest growing segment of the national electorate, and in some polls, now the largest segment of the national electorate, we Independents would like to be presented with another option besides the Republican and Democratic parties.  We desperately desire more competition in the political arena, and as poll after poll shows, we are highly dissatisfied with only two viable options at the voting booth.

Therefore, we politely ask your firm to conduct more regular surveys regarding the option of a third party presidential candidate in 2012, as well as a third major party in national politics at large.
