Rigging the Electoral System for the Rich

Marge Baker

A poll conducted late last year found that more than seven in ten voters think our election system is “biased in favor of the candidate with the most money.”

While nothing about this number is surprising — except, perhaps, that it’s not even higher — it does reveal the depth of cynicism characterizing Americans’ perceptions of our political system. We believe, correctly, that the system is rigged for the rich.
