GALLUP: All-Time High Say We Need Third Party

by Shawn M. Griffiths, published

Voter dissatisfaction with the Republican and Democratic Parties isn't going away. A recent Gallup poll reports that an all-time high 61 percent of respondents say both parties are doing such a bad job that a third party is needed. The number has remained relatively in the same ballpark since 2013, when it skyrocketed from 46 percent in 2012 to 60 percent.

Perhaps not surprisingly, 77 percent of independents -- who make up a plurality of the voting population -- say Americans need a third major party. Check out the full results here.
