    Because both parties are corrupt and don't really care about the voters.

    Elections are a matter of opinion. All presidents subsequently get judged by historians, political scientists etc. (people most qualified to judge because they use facts, not opinion) on job performance. Some of America's "recent" presidents stack up quite well when compared to the history of the office. However, people will always be entitled to their opinion. That's what I think you're looking at.

    Because the USA have a stupid voting system that doesn't give voters more than two options.

    Ranked choice aka instant runoff voting wouldn't be much better. If 50 % think candidate A is best, 50% think candidate B is best, and 100 % think candidate C is second best, candidate C will still lose.

    Where I live, next week's national elections have 37 parties participating (half won't win a seat). After the election there will be negotiations because governing requires a majority-coalition. Usually the biggest party in the coalition provides a minister-president

    i blame the primary system -- the major candidate who is farther away from the middle is likely all alone and thus wins the primary -- perhaps with only 30pc of the vote -- while the middle candidates split the remaining 70pc among six to ten people.  This can be solved with ranked choice voting for primaries -- in which case the farther out candidates will likely lose and lose badly.  Ranked choice is in ordinary use in Australia -- so we know it is practical.  [Louisiana has yet another primary system which also tends to reduce the chances of outlier candidates.]
