Poll: 62 Percent Say Third Political Party Needed

“New Deal conservatism” isn’t as ridiculous as you might think. We’re clearly at the end of the Reagan era and the tectonic plates of the electorate aren’t done shifting around yet.

The Hill:

“Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the U.S. needs a third major political party because the GOP and Democratic Party “do such a poor job representing the American people,” according to a new Gallup poll.

In the survey released Monday, 62 percent of Americans said the third party was needed, while 33 percent said the two existing major parties do an “adequate” job representing the majority of Americans’ political views.

It’s the largest percentage of people to say the U.S. needs a third party since Gallup began polling on the question in 2003. The poll also marks the second-lowest percentage of people who said the existing parties are adequate after 26 percent of respondents said so in an October 2013 poll. …

Four in 10 Republicans say they want their party to become more conservative after the end of former President Trump‘s term, while 34 percent hope it will stay the same and just 24 percent want it to become more moderate. Democrats are more split, with 34 percent wanting their party to shift left, 34 percent wanting it to remain the same and 31 percent wanting it to shift right. …”

There is enormous dissatisfaction with the status quo.

This soaring populist discontent with the antiquated two party system and the two reigning ideologies, which is a natural process that has repeatedly happened across American history, is what the political establishment pathologizes as “the rise of domestic extremism” or “fascism.”

Gallup:

“Independents are usually much more likely than Republicans or Democrats to favor a third political party, but in the current poll, Republicans are nearly as likely as independents to hold this view, 63% to 70%. That represents a dramatic shift for Republicans since last September when 40% favored a third party.

Republicans’ current level of support for a third party is also the highest Gallup has measured for Republicans or Democrats in Gallup’s trend. The previous high was 54% for Democrats in 2018. Currently, 46% of Democrats endorse a third party, down from 52% in September. …

Currently, 68% of Republicans prefer that Trump remain the party leader, while 31% want the party to have a new leader. Republican-leaning independents, however, are divided, with 47% wanting Trump to continue leading and 51% preferring a new voice. …”

34% of Democrats want to shift left.

34% of Democrats want to stay the same.

31% of Democrats want to shift right.

In order to hold these people together, you have to scare them. There is an “insurrection” going on in Trump Country. It is literally the Reconstruction South.

There is a persistent 70/30 split in the Republican Party which is consolidating around Donald Trump. The establishment wing is now the disaffected minority. The big picture trend is that college-educated suburbanites are migrating to the Democrats and working class voters are migrating to the Republicans. The Democrats are being gentrified and Republicans are moving downscale. Trump lost the 2020 election because he reverted to mainstream conservatism instead of leaning into the shift.

The mainstream conservatism ideology of the Republican Party, its policy agenda and especially the gerontocracy in Washington hasn’t caught up with the resorting of the electorate.

The Democrats are becoming an upper middle class suburban party of PMCs (professional managerial class) that is focused on self actualization and esteem issues. This is why the Democrats under Joe Biden are focused on woke, trans, climate and open borders issues instead of the people at the bottom of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs who need their physiological, safety and belonging needs satisfied.

Tablet Mag:

More and more Americans are figuring out that “wokeness” functions in the new, centralized American elite as a device to exclude working-class Americans of all races, along with backward remnants of the old regional elites. In effect, the new national oligarchy changes the codes and the passwords every six months or so, and notifies its members through the universities and the prestige media and Twitter. …

Woke speech is simply a ruling-class dialect, which must be updated frequently to keep the lower orders from breaking the code and successfully imitating their betters.”

Why has wokeness spread like a plague? It is because these largely college-educated middle class people are focused on self actualization and esteem needs. Their politics consists of grandiose displays of their own virtue. They are better and morally superior than everyone else in this country.

  1. People are not satisfied with the “choices” they are given.

    If you started a “third party” that had a different agenda than either Democrats or Republicans – but that agenda still wasn’t what Americans wanted – having a “third choice” would make no difference.

    It’s not the party – it is the agenda.

    For instance, after they crashed the entire economy with the Covid “lock downs,” people want $2,000 to make up for what they lost.

    Neither Democrats nor Republicans will give the people what they want – $2,000.

    If a third party shows up, the Reform Party, and they still won’t give the people what they want – two thousand dollars – nothing really changes.

    • Re: “Neither Democrats nor Republicans will give the people what they want”:

      They WILL give the people what they want, but first the people must beg and grovel for the two thousand worthless and taxable dollars (long denial makes it feel like a victory) – along with the regular rations of cheap bread (junk food and corporate ag “local organic”) and “circuses” (Hollywood entertainment) that keep them from thinking about real socialism.

      “If a third party shows up, the Reform Party….”

      Reforms are only temporary arrangements designed to distract people from thinking about demanding real change. Only “third” parties that are not anti-capitalist can run candidates in the U.S.’s so-called elections.

    • Third Party? Revised Republican? Check out “The Great Reset?” at Miles W. Mathis’ site. It’s all planned, already. That’s what they WANT you to do.

      “But as I have been telling you, it is just the opposite. The masses are being pushed right, not left. All the outrageous things being said and done by the left are scripted, like everything else. And they are being scripted to call out a response from you. You are meant to be revolted by all this transparent fascism coming from the left. You are meant to hate Antifa, SJW, #Metoo, BLM, and all the rest. You are meant to believe the election was stolen. “Liberals” are being purposely blackwashed. That is their role, and thousands have been hired to play the part of the bad guy, the heavy, or the villain, including Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. That is why the police are allowing the left to riot, and why the mainstream media is reporting all the asinine things they are saying. That is why they are calling for defunding the police, socialism, and free rent. That is why these whiteboys of Antifa are calling for the end of the white race: whites are the majority in this country even now, and they are being purposely stirred up. Same for the blacks in the news, saying outrageous and incendiary things on purpose. It is a repeat of the whole Black Panthers fiction of the 60s, which was also created and managed to blackwash the left. They needed to move the country hard right in the 1960s, and they needed to do it again in 2020. Nothing squelches revolutionary spirit and takes the eyes off the very rich like a forced movement to the right, including fake race wars, fake gender wars, and fake political wars.

      This is why the rise in revolutionary spirit is not only being allowed, but promoted. That revolutionary spirit is pushing you right, toward the New Republican Party, so it is no real danger. The revolution is scripted and controlled, you see.”

      OPT OUT. Strangle them. DEFANG THE JEWS. Sink the Phoenician Navy!

  2. There are ireconcialble differences between the majority nonwhite Democratic Party Voting Bloc and THE MAJORITY WHITE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS HISTORIC MAJORITY Voting Bloc…how couldn’t there be?

    Big Tits Tulsa Gabbard is very enthusiastic about they H1B-L1 Visa Program at a time young Native Born White American Women recent RN Grads face rat race competition for the first RN jobs.

    Tulsi Gabbard is a pineapple faced Samoan Whore……Andrew Hop Sing Yang up next….

    The reason why there wasn’t a rebellion against the 1965 Immigration Reform Act in 1965 was because LBJ ordered the invasion of South Vietnam by the USMC…..onto the draft…which grabbed the attention of Teenage White Males and their Parents……and as this was going on, the wrinkled old Texas Toad LBJ was being sucked off by Doris Kearns Goodwin and Matilde Krim……in the Oval Office…

  3. A not so gentle reminder:

    BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!!!!..from the Middle East

    NO MORE SILVER COFFINS RETURNING TO AMERICA

    NO MORE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT INFOMERCIALS….lining some retired Admiral’s pocket..with $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$……

    War is racket………THE ADL’s racket…..that’s for sure……

  4. “””…There is enormous dissatisfaction with the status quo…”””

    Sheep’s are screaming that they do not like butchery. But there is nothing to do because sheep’s want perfect sheep owner and when sheep defender makes one mistake, then sheep’s vote butcher again.

    This why everybody should support Donald. There is not a single fool left who sacrifices his life only to be betrayed.

    Can you imagine the situation when someone ruining his life to give the Keystone pipeline workers their jobs back ?

    In the year 2024 , communists dig the Trotsky skeleton out of grave , bring it over the border and Keystone workers betray again their savior and vote for communist who died 84 years ago.

    Who the hell want to defend those workers with ruining his life only for getting Trotsky skeleton for next president and Ilhan Omar for Vice President ?

  5. The political establishment will not allow a third party to arise unless it helps either the Republican or Democrat faction of the ruling class and is a temporary phenomenon. Ross Perot’s Reform Party was his personal vehicle to prevent the reelection of George Bush I in 1992. The Republican faction opposed it and used the legal system to suppress it while the Democrat faction supported it in legal challenges because it weakened GWB I in his attempt at reelection. After that scumbag Clinton won in 1992 the Reform Party melted away, it had served its purpose.

    If the loathsome Republican Party were to implode and a new party arise from the wreckage like the Whigs in the 19th century there would still be only two parties. Third parties will only be a temporary phenomenon in U.S. politics, the U.S. Government and its beneficial owners will see to that.

  6. Trump is the third party.
    That is why both parties attacked him and carried out a coup.

    2024 will be Trump and Kristi Noem (SD Governor). Sorry Huckabee.

    • On economics, paleocons only disagree with other cons on free trade. Otherwise, they back the same plutocratic policies.

      Polls have shown since the 1990s that most Americans want to change the two party system but why haven’t they yet? Because too many voters are ignorant, lazy, and dumb.

      I think the Green Party is the only party that wants to replace the Electoral College with proportional representation and private campaign funding with public funding. If American voters were to vote for them in spite of other ideological disagreements, we could dismantle the current system with something fairer and more representative.
      Hunter, why don’t you recommend people vote for them and other third parties instead of voting for either of the two major parties or sitting it out?

  7. The viability of a third party gaining significant power in the former Soviet Union had more of a chance than it does in the modern USA. The Dems and the GOP have written their joint dictatorship into the rule books. If you don’t believe me ask Ross Perot, Ron Paul, etc… The USA is a two party dictatorship.
