Will the US split into a four-party system?

Reader comment on item: "Republican Mob" Was Once an Oxymoron, Now It's a Reality

Even if briefly, it seems like the US could split into a four-party system.

• Populist Trump legacy
• Elitist deep-state Bush legacy
• Elitist deep-state Clinton-Obama legacy
• Populist Sanders legacy

I had to think twice about whether Sanders is elitist or not, since he seems to enjoy the endorsement of the Big Tech oligarchs. But in terms of the deep state, Sanders seems enough of an outsider.

It is too bad, Sanders and Trump agree on little, since both of them working together would be more effective at making inroads into the deep state corporate establishment.
