80. I don't think that it's a matter of whether it would be worse or not............

It's a matter of representation. When people don't feel represented by the two parties, EVENTUALLY another party springs up to represent that un or underrepresented mass.

And it wouldn't stop at three parties. IF the Republicans split, IMO it's a guarantee the Dems will split too. The leftish, FDR Dems haven't felt represented by the overall Democratic Party in a couple of decades now. Once the specter of a Tea Party Congress and President are gone by a split in the Republicans, those FDR Dems are gone too. Either that or they take back the Democratic Party and the Third Way neo-liberals leave. One way or another, the Dems split shortly after the Republicans.
