ABC News reported the following on '08 Election Night:

Message 25142794

From the above post I quote the following, offer an observation:

>>>Obama is performing very well among college educated white voters...Bush won this group in the last 2 presidential elections...McCain didn't attract enough of these voters.<<<

This explains a moderate Republican shift to Obama, as noted by a multitude of GOP endorsements from moderates for Obama. In essence, the far rightwingers were left hanging. I predict they'll reform, they are energized enough and might form into another political party. As a consequence of the Obama election America might finally see a viable three-or four party system evolve when it comes to electing national candidates.

So this is the question for the debate of this thread: IS AMERICA READY FOR A THREE OR FOUR POLITICAL PARTY SYSTEM?
