I'd say so. As of now basically every country in Europe has some extreme-right-wingers in their parliaments. If the American system was reformed the teabaggers might form their own party and get some seats... and if neither other party has a majority they'll be controlling any decision the other parties can't reach an agreement on. Which is basically the situation in Sweden right now
