Third party (or minor party) is a term used in the United States for political parties other than the two major parties (the Republican and Democratic parties).

Third parties are most often encountered in presidential nominations. No third-party candidate has won the presidency since the Republican Party became a major party in the mid-19th century. Since that time, only in five elections (1892, 1912, 1924, 1948, and 1968) has a third-party candidate carried any states.[1]
