More About Lee Drutman
"As Lee argues, the way to move past the crippling division and dysfunction—to escape the doom loop of escalating two-party warfare—is through large-scale electoral reform that would allow for multiparty representation. This type of reform would not require a constitutional amendment, and would make our democracy more representative, more responsive, and ultimately, more stable."
"In most places, meaningful two-party electoral competition is nonexistent. Rather than being one two-party nation, we are becoming two one-party nations."
