(DailyVantage.com) – As the 2024 presidential election approaches, all eyes are focusing in on the growing Republican field and when exactly Democrat president Joe Biden will officially declare his re-election campaign.
However, Fox News is reporting the rise of a third party which could also be in the mix for the 2024 presidential election. The group refers to themselves as “No Labels”, and they look to position themselves as a political alternative to the growing ideological rift between the Republican party and the increasingly radical Democrat party.
It has been reported that the group has faced increasing criticism from Democrat aligned voices who view the presence of the No Labels party as a threat to President Joe Biden’s 2024 re-election chances, stating how the No Labels could potentially “field a spoiler who would re-elect Trump or a Trump-like Republican”.
However, it remains unclear what level of threat such a candidate would pose to the chances of the Democratic presidential candidate specifically.
Other reports have noted the group’s focus on framing their platform around the idea of bipartisanship. More specifically, on the idea of a “Unity Ticket” featuring one Republican and one Democrat on the presidential ticket in an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the parties, and appeal to centrists and other moderate voters.
However, it is important to note that this party’s plans are preliminary and their development is still early on in the process. Reports about the young nature of this movement shed some doubt on Democratic fears that the party will be a major disruptor in the presidential election, but that doesn’t mean the threat of third-party support is not present.
Recent reports have also suggested that there is growing voter enthusiasm for the Libertarian party in South Dakota, which could be indicative of a trend towards increasing third party support in certain areas which feel ostracized by America’s growing ideological divide.
