Minor parties have contributed MOST to US politics by?

Causing major parties to consider, and sometimes adopt, their ideas. Often, it takes a smaller party to put forward a new or potentially controversial idea-- it may not be a bad idea, but it may be perceived as controversial because it goes against what the majority party has espoused up to that point. The two major parties (Republicans and Democrats) often tend to be very cautious when proposing new policies, for fear of alienating voters. They stick to their established talking points, and hesitate to violate the expectations of those who have supported them. But the minor or smaller parties feel they have less to lose, since the people who voted for their party did so with an expectation that they would be different and make bolder proposals. When a minor party introduces a new policy idea and gets it into the political discussion, there is the chance that, gradually, the proposal might gain some traction, to the point where it is ultimately adopted and implemented by a major party.


Is it true that the lack of success of minor parties to be the party power or to be a major player has actually allowed them to take a clearee cut stand on specific issues?

What are the benefits of voting for a minor party candidate?

In almost any democratic nation with both major and minor political parties, there is no clear advantage of minor parties. In fact it's just the opposite. Minor parties have few members and less weight than the major ones. And taking stands on controversial issues is something a major party often does. The fact that a minor party may do it is of little or no value. Thereby the minor party's "issues" have no currency in the mainstream political world of today.
