None of the Above

Brookhiser, Richard
October 1980
National Review;10/31/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 22, p1324
The article emphasizes the significance of third parties to the U.S. political system. Third parties have the ability to decide who will win the election. Take for example the independent campaign of Eugene McCarthy in 1976 which received more votes in several U.S. states than his competitor Gerald Ford. Furthermore, these parties are more vital to the campaigns of ideas. These ideas and the response they receive from the public in turn will impact future elections. For the 1980 election, two third parties have been trying to gain voters, the Libertarian Party and the Citizens Party.
