Poll: Majority Support for Third Party Alternative

From Gallup:
Fifty-two percent of Americans believe the Republican and Democratic parties do such a poor job of representing the people that a third party is needed. Forty percent believe they do an adequate job. The percentage calling for a third party is down from August, when it tied its high of 58%. . . . Gallup has always found political independents to be most desirous of a third party, and 68% currently are. But right now there is also a significant party gap, with 52% of Republicans favoring a third party, compared with 33% of Democrats.

A lot of Republicans who favor a "third party" likely think the Tea Party is a real "third party," and not just a bastard offspring of the GOP.
