This paper, an update of my earlier paper "From the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street," adds considerable material on Occupy Wall Street to the comparison of the Tea Party, the union-based protests in Madison and elsewhere, and Occupy Wall Street, all considered as attempts (conscious or not) to resolve the crisis of the American party system. The question raised by the title can be answered only after the November 2012 election, but this paper attempts to frame that question in ways that will tell us what to look for in November.
