A recent poll finds that "people are really unhappy about their role, or lack of it, in the democratic process." Surprise, surprise.
When asked which groups have lots of influence over government, 68% of folks said "large campaign contributors" and "large corporations." Just 20% said the general public. Roughly two-thirds supported reforms such as term limits, abolishing the electoral college, and greater use of citizen ballot measures.
