- Question: Third parties rarely succeed in national elections because of:
- little local enthusiasm.
- weak leadership.
- lack of money and traditional support.
- no media attention.
The correct answer is: lack of money and traditional support. Third parties may have some local support, but few carry this into the national arena. Third parties may have dynamic leadership but this has won few elections. The media give attention to popular third parties, but this does not lead to success on the national stage.
