Why Independents Rarely Win Elections
And How They Could Become More Competitive
How can independent political candidates become more competitive in elections?
A significant proportion of Americans are dissatisfied with the country’s two-party system. They often respond with negative opinions of both the Republican and Democratic Parties. Many of them identify as independents and even more of them want a third major political party. Yet elected offices across the board are routinely dominated by Republicans and Democrats while independents take only a small fraction of what is available. Why is there such an enormous disparity between what the public wants and who wins public office?
