Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang launched a new political party Tuesday. Known as the Forward Party, Yang brought the new party to life in an effort to bridge the polarization between Democrats and Republicans after announcing that he was leaving the Democratic Party on Monday.
In a video posted to Twitter formally announcing the party and launching the group's official website, ForwardParty.com, Yang stated that the organization was created to "solve the problems that are literally driving us crazy." While the 46-year-old had long been rumored to be forming a new party, he had not previously announced anything concrete.
"You have to face facts that this system is not working," Yang continued in the video. "Unfortunately, the polarization is reaching record highs to a point where people can't be in the same room as family members, we're seeing literal violence erupt and it's going to get worse, not better."
According to statistics mentioned in the video, 57 percent of Americans desired a third party, and up to 60 percent said that they felt both the Democratic and Republican Parties were out of touch.
