Voters Seek Alternative to 2-Party Norm

MSNBC story:

A new NEWSWEEK Poll, conducted Wednesday and Thursday nights, suggests a majority of registered voters agree with Bloomberg: 57 percent say the two-party system does not do a good job addressing issues important to Americans, according to the poll. The same percentage of registered voters say the country needs a third political party. That's up from 46 percent in 2003--and virtually identical to the 58 percent who said they favored a third party back in 1996, the year Ross Perot mounted his second independent run for the presidency.

Yep. Just like I was saying... :)

I don't think they'd vote for just anybody just because he was not a Pub or Dem, but they're open to new ideas so the big parties better not take anything for granted.
