The fundamental problem of the death spiral of American politics :

  1. Only middle-class (and above) people vote, so...
  2. Government only considers the interests of middle-class(and above) voters, so...
  3. go to 1

I haven't seen any change in that dynamic in the past 4 years. I would be delighted but surprised if the participation rate (including voter registration) were significantly higher than last time.
