A news release from The Constitution Party Of Indiana cites new polls released this week that show near-record high fears of big government and strong support for the emergence of a credible third political party to shake up Washington, D.C., largely because the Republican and Democrat parties are being viewed in an increasingly unfavorable light.
According to a USA Today/Gallup survey released on December 13, around 54 percent of Americans nationwide would like to see the introduction of an alternative to the two major political parties. The number in favor of change was 52 percent in the top 12 “battleground” states, according to poll results.
According to survey participants, the reason for the spike in interest is, “The GOP and Democratic parties do such a poor job that a third major party is needed.” Support for a third party is even higher among moderate and liberal Republicans, as well as moderate and conservative Democrats, USA Today reported. Barely a third of conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans were “enthusiastic” about voting for a President in 2012, the poll found.
