Behind the Vote: Two Party System

Democracy's Chief Executive

21-11-2023 • 54分

Many Americans report that they are frustrated by the two-party system and wish the U.S. were more of a multiparty democracy. Yet current election rules leave virtually no role for independent candidates or third parties in presidential elections other than “spoiler.” What are the features of U.S. elections that have helped ensure there will always be no more than two major parties in every era?

How might the rules be changed to facilitate the emergence of more parties, at least in legislative elections? Might the viability of more than two parties in legislative contests encourage more voter participation in presidential elections as well? Peter and Dale discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by third parties with political scientists Lee Drutman, Charlotte Hill, and Sandy Maisel.
