Poll: 43% Say Democrats and Republicans Do Not Represent the American People, Independents Want Third Party

From Rasmussen:
a plurality (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. Thirty-five percent (35%) disagree that neither party represents the American people, and another 22% are not sure. . . .

Unaffiliated voters by a 49% to 41% margin also see the need for an entirely new party to represent the American people. As is generally the case, the Political Class and Mainstream voters don’t see eye-to-eye.  Fifty-three percent (53%) of Mainstream voters believe it’s fair to say neither party in Congress is the party of the American people. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of the Political Class don’t share that assessment.
