Voting 3rd party in the United States is pointless. It is your right to do so, but it is still pointless.
I hate the two party system too, but protest voting is not going to change the system. "Voting your conscience" isn't going to change the system. People have been voting their conscience for over 200 years in the US now, yet we have always had a two party system. Funding isn't the problem. Neither is ballot restrictions, the media, or the ignorant public. The biggest obstacle to to 3rd parties is winner take all voting. The best solution to help more parties would be to implement proportional voting or Instant runoff voting. Until this happens, every US President will a part of the two party system.
* Only Top 40/Mainstream and Top 40/Rhythm-Crossover stations were part of Hot 100 Airplay from late 1990-mid-1993. The highest stations count during that time was 130 or so (it had dropped back to just over a 100 or so for a time in 1993).
* In mid-1993, AC and modern-rock stations were added to the H100 Airplay panel, increasing the panel size).
* The number of stations continued to grow annually (though dipping back at certain times) through 1998, reaching as high as 300+.
* In December 1998, all formats were added to H100 Airplay, taking the panel size to more than 700 stations. Since then, stations have been added to the panel, with the total number of stations topping 1,200.
Obviously, audience totals for tracks peaking from December 1998-on would have higher totals than those peaking before it (especially if they were big hits at multiple formats).
