In the Hive

The origins of the American two-party system


Today on In the Hive, we look at the origins of the American two-party system, and ponder whether either party might split into multiple parties, or dissolve altogether. Plus we try to get to the bottom of question about the adoption of the two major parties by Utahns in the run-up to statehood.
