Question: Are two parties enough?

Mitt Romney: Boy, they sure are. If you look at countries that have multiple parties, you find in many cases that the extreme party – the smallest party – ends up having a disproportionate strength by virtue of being the tiebreaker between the two major parties. And so I’m not somebody that is in favor of a multi-party system here in America. I think the Republican tent needs to be big enough to . . . to encompass a majority of the people of this great country.
