    I think Ed Rogers wins that one today.

    Some of the commentary about the political harm facing Republicans over the looming government shutdown may be overestimated. I believe there may be such a thing as “shutdown fatigue” among voters.

    ...

    No one is winning this fight. Does either party believe it can survive for much longer with this kind of dissatisfaction among their consumers? Voters might just go shopping for a better offer.

    For the first time, I see the ingredients there for a third-party movement. It wouldn’t take much for a conservative third party to gather enough votes in a few districts and states to make a big difference. But any such movement would have to coalesce around a leader, and I don’t see who that person might be.
