Disgust with Washington has damaged both the Republican and Democratic parties and pushed support for a viable third party to an all-time high, according to a new Gallup poll.

According to Gallup:

Amid the government shutdown, 60% of Americans say the Democratic and Republicans parties do such a poor job of representing the American people that a third major party is needed. That is the highest Gallup has measured in the 10-year history of this question. A new low of 26% believe the two major parties adequately represent Americans.
