In today's episode, we begin to take stock of the frightening state of American democracy, where it is good news that the sitting president probably won't steal an election. Why is the situation so dire? How did we get here? What do we do going forward, and can we come back from this? Two of the main ingredients to the problem that we discuss in this episode are a background of extreme political polarization and an allegiance to Trump which supersedes allegiance to democratic institutions.
