The American Two Party System is so strong that third parties can't effectively influence public policy.
Since the late 1960s there has been much discussion and concern about the stability and the strength of the American two-party system. After David Broder's, (1971) declaration that the "party's over" partisanship has been in decline. Many people believe that third parties could solve the partisanship and divided government that has plagued America for the latter half of the last century. What is your opinion on the two-party system? Can third parties truly make a difference.... in America... in the world?
