In the article of Donald Trump is a textbook example of an ideological moderate by Aher and Broockman, it argues that Donald Trump is a moderator for he has the qualities. He despiseS the party orthodoxy and is popular among voters. He does not have a consistent position on the familiar left-right philosophy. He is not that left and not that right. For example, in his second debate, he criticized harshly on killing civilians and called Irap war was a mistake for it diverted money. In measuring voters left or right ideology, the frequencies of their opinions falling on the the scale of liberal or conservative side on varies issues are often considered. Since many voter have mixed position on varies issues, they are called “ideological moderates.” While being ideological moderates does not necessarily guarantee that one will be moderate on actual individual issues. The people who holds extreme liberal position on tax may support extreme conservative opinion on immigration. They are not on the same ideology position consistently.
In the article of Political Parties: Should the U.S. Encourage Multi-Party Politics”, the author explains why the U.S. political system is dominated by the Republican and Democratic parties The American political stage has been controlled in turn by two major parties and has never encountered a strong opponent. Although there have also been some small parties, they have no merit. The American election system naturally leads to a two-party system. In other words, in the country implementing relative majority representation system, the one with the highest number of votes wins and the voters realize that it is not easy for small parties to win seats. If the votes are cast for a small party, it is a waste of votes. Therefore, voters tend to vote for their preferred candidates among the top two leaders, even if he is not the first choice. This has made it difficult for small parties or low-profile candidates to be elected, creating a situation in which the two major parties compete. And it is very hard for the 3 party to raise substantial amount of money to run the election. Also a third party do not a get sufficient media coverage. The American voting system is a majority system rather than a proportional representation system.Suppose there are two Parties, Party a receiving 10,000 votes in one selection and Party B receiving 9999 votes. Then the Party A get all the seats in the area. Then, depending on the political trends of the people in the area, there are usually only two largest parties (relatively, left and right) who have the right to speak in politics. It is very hard for a 3’rd party to gain a place.
While those support a third party believe that a third party candidates can raise issues that the majority party members may ignore. Larry Diamond support multi-party politics. He believe that the election system is too rigid right now and not efficient to address issues. He think that it is necessary to make it more easier to make the 3’rd party candidates to participate in the election. While Klein is not that positive about the 3’rd party. The 3’rd party president may be lack of support from the two major parties and his agenda may get defeated. Also, the president may be lack of constitutional power for the congress may not be willing to grand him that.
I believe there is no need for a third party. The ideology types can be covered by the republican and democratic parties. Others could seems as other forms that derive from the two. Too much parties would only mess with the current system.
