Unfortunatley, many third party candidates are not given the media coverage or garner the enormous corporate backing that the two major parties do.
I have the feeling that voters are faced with deciding between which is the worse of two evils. A vote for a third party candidate "steals" votes from a Dem/Rep candidate and thus swings the election, as evident in the 2000 elections.
The electoral and political system as it is discourages the rise of a viable, alternate candidate.
It seems that the issues that matter most to the working class citizens of the country get lost amongst elitist objectives.
