In the discussion thread: We Need 3 Major Parties [View all]

50. We had 3 candidates in 1992 and 1996.

Perot would have won a lot more votes in 1992 if hadn't dropped out and jumped back in. He had a real chance. Sometimes I wish he had won, although I voted for Clinton. I think any of those 3 men would have been respected by most people. Clinton didn't get a majority in either election, but he was pretty popular. He was impeached, of course, but that's the kind of behavior you expect from Republicans when their guy loses.

W. was wildly unpopular and a large part of the electorate hates Obama with a passion. There wasn't a serious 3rd party candidate in any of their elections. If the majority is doing well during a President's administration, they will like him.

Maybe 4 parties would be better. Who really knows? We can continue to do the same things expecting different results or we can change our actions and see what happens.
