It's one thing or the other, or maybe a mix of both. No amount of cheating could have given victory to the GOP if there wasn't already close to half of the population voting for them.

Also, if a democratic government can be so easily corrupted by the rich and powerful, if the democratic population is too dumb, too numb or too busy to react strongly against corruption, then I ask: how is democracy any better than tyranny? Democracy would be just a nice concept that works well on paper, but is failing real-life testing.
