The government shutdown has more people than ever saying America needs a third party.

A new Gallup poll says 60% of Americans say the Democratic and Republicans parties do such a poor job of representing the American people that a third major party is needed.

That is the highest Gallup has measured in the 10-year history of this question.

Results for the Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted between October 3rd and 6th.

Gallup took a random sample of 1,028 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

What do you think?  Is it time for a third party?  Or do you think it's time to eliminate all the parties?
