Only a minority of American voters now have faith in either Democrats or Republicans according to a new Rasmussen poll out today, with favorability toward a third party surging amidst a wave of anti-incumbent success.
“43% of Likely U.S. Voters believes that neither Democrats nor Republicans in Congress are the party of the American people, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Nearly as many see a need for a new third party,” according to Rasmussen Reports. Only 35 % – a minority – still believe that Republicans or Democrats represent the American people.
In addition, 38% now think that it is somewhat likely a third party candidate will be elected as US President within the next 10 years.
A massive 72% of Republican voters say the GOP has lost touch with its party base over the past few years compared with 61% who believe the same of Democrats.
The poll numbers suggest that confidence in the two party scam continues to collapse as the mid-terms near, offering hope that voters are finally beginning to understand that continually re-electing establishment Republican or Democrat presidents changes nothing.
Despite the GOP’s best efforts to hijack the Tea Party movement, candidates like David Ryon are pushing populist issues that genuinely address the real problems behind America’s decline. Ryon, who is running for Ohio’s 15th District Congressional seat under the Constitution Party banner, recently called for an audit of the Federal Reserve in line with Ron Paul’s efforts to initiate a full audit of the Fed.
Meanwhile, Sharron Angle, who has pulled ahead of establishment Democrat Harry Reid despite Barack Obama himself endorsing Reid in a desperate attempt to save his Senate seat, advocates a number of policies shared by the majority of Americans, including a full repeal of Obamacare, lower taxes, properly securing the border, and even removing sodium fluoride from public water supplies.
Rand Paul also continues to enjoy a comfortable lead over Democrat Jack Conway, despite the fact that Bill Clinton was called upon to campaign against him and in addition to an endless series of contrived smears run by the establishment media.
The new poll confirms that anti-incumbency fever is still directing the course of the mid-terms, with 62% of the country believing it will be better for America if most congressional incumbents are defeated in November.
The survey also reveals that nearly a third of all likely voters now consider themselves to be Tea Party movement advocates, a truly gargantuan voting bloc considering the modest beginnings of the Tea Party as a small but vocal affiliation of anti-tax protesters just a few years ago.
To have 29% of likely voters consider themselves to not be aligned with either Republicans or Democrats represents a massive threat to the establishment and could be the seed that grows into a truly powerful third party movement. Whether this anti-establishment political revolution turns into effective long term success for third party candidates depends on how successful the GOP is in infiltrating and subverting the Tea Party in the build up to 2012.
