In the realm of American politics, two parties dominate the landscape: Republicans and Democrats. But other countries have multiple party options for voters, and, whether you realized it or not, we do, too. In this unit, we will look at the role of political parties in American politics, and analyze their effects on the democratic system. We will also give some time and attention to those other parties (or third parties, as they are often called) that don't get much air time in the press.
