    Koch said another reason support for third-party candidates is waning is the dynamics of this year's presidential race. Strong support for the Democratic candidates, especially Obama, has energized young and first-time voters to turn out in primaries and caucuses.

    This sucks. Until we start getting away from the two party system, it will continue to be more of the same.

    Not enough!!! There should be an I.Q. test before one is able to vote anyway.

    I think most young people get caught up in the media glamorization(may not be a word) of the race and don't focus on hardcore issues that say a third party candidate runs on, and usually a 3rd party candidate doesn't have a war chest like the other clowns so the media shuns him or her.. Media and politicians are stupid
