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.
Researchers conducted a taste-testing experiment in which participants consumed single-malt Scotch in specially-designed rooms labeled “grassy,” “sweet,” and “woody.” They claimed the taste was different in each room.
