Chait and Fornier are addressing similar, but not identical, issues. Chait argues that the Electoral College system makes a 3rd party President most unlikely. Fornier points to the example of Crist, a 3rd Party candidate for Senate. It's conceivable that a third party might win a substantial number of seats in Congress and at the Statewide level, even though they have no chance of winning the Presidency.

Nevertheless, I agree with Brendan. IMHO the two major parties have rigged the system so as to make it very, very difficult for a 3rd party to succeed.

The issue of New Scientist containing the article that we discussed a couple of posts ago is panned here.
