What a great idea! Agglomerate all the extremists into one party where we can keep track of them. Maybe they'll syphon off enough votes to keep Republicans unelectable for years.

BTW, it's the Democratic party. Also BTW, all of the people who took the trouble to vote are real Americans, they're citizens who exercised their franchise and voted for the other real Americans on the various tickets.

While it is hard to adequately represent our diverse population with just two parties, would it not be difficult to get a majority of votes in an election when there are more than two? If the votes are divided between three or more parties, it would be hard to get enough of a majority from any one party for a real win.

As a Democrat, YES! This is what I was hoping for.
