Editor’s Note: It sounds so strange to write this today, yet as our world changes, the need for a political party may evaporate in the near future. “Political power” will be replaced by “people power” as the need for control to ensure personal finances will end.

The emergence of personal abundance from a global perspective will eliminate those who seek office, by those who want the office of helping others. Stay tuned and watch as these changes occur, decide you want to help humanity, and then BE in…

Quantum Joy!

Key Points

  • More than half of Americans believe the current political parties do such a poor job that a third major party is needed, according to a survey by Gallup.
  • More minor parties have seen an uptick in support and interest in recent years.

A study by the Pew Research center found that 61% of U.S. adults today find the Republican Party unfavorable, while 57% shared the same sentiment toward the Democratic Party. About a quarter of Americans say they have an unfavorable view of both major parties, a considerable jump from just 6% in 1994.

Some experts suggest that the two-party system could be blamed for the political polarization we find in America.

“It’s a two-party system and you have to pick one side or the other,” said Lee Drutman, a senior fellow at New America. “If we are in a situation in which one party believes that the other party winning the election would be so disastrous to the country that maybe we should intervene to prevent the other party from winning, then you don’t really have a democracy anymore.”

More than half — 56% of Americans — believe the current parties do such a poor job that a third major party is needed, according to a survey by Gallup. Indeed, minor parties are seeing an uptick in support and interest in recent years.

“We’ve seen a lot of support translate into grassroots support where people are not just checking a box every four years,” according to Angela McArdle, chair of the Libertarian National Committee, the third-largest political party in the U.S. “They’re actually wanting to get engaged and get involved at the local level and to really see individualism and freedom flourish in their own communities.”
