That's the thing, if we never see third party candidates as a viable option, there'll never be a viable third candidate since the system will not allow it and the media will not promote it. They are not even allowed into the debates unless they have 15% of following which is a high bar to reach, if you have no debate exposure. It's a chicken & egg situation that gets exacerbated by disillusioned voters supporting one of the two main parties anyway.
