Well, it can happen if we move away from plurality voting and towards systems like IRV and Proportional Representation. But most people who want third parties to succeed don't understand that.

Electoral reform is a long-shot because the two parties like keeping their power (although maybe the Dems might go for it, given how little power they have right now), so it would have to be a grassroots movement tapping into all this dissatisfaction of the two parties. But this dissatisfaction might be pretty broad. Why else do you keep having to debunk the third party thing so many times?
