posted on 08 August 2016 Written by John LounsburyThere is a long history of more than two parties running candidates for president in the U.S. In many elections the results of the third party (or fourth, in some cases) do not find a significant percentage of the popular vote going to candidates other than those of the the top two parties, but in some elections there has been a significant number of votes cast for a third party candidate.
