30453, Three party political system works in the UK... why?
Posted by love2000, Tue May-10-05 07:00 AM


From the vote results you see there are three major parties with a fourth party on the fringe. The leading party received roughly 36% of the vote.

How did the UK's three party system come into being? Why does it work there?

Then, ultimately, what would it take for it to work in the US? I figure most people can't offer solutions without a clear understanding of a successful precedent..
