The Democracy Index
The US dropped in the 2016 Democracy Index from a full democracy to a flawed democracy. This was before Dump and due to several factors, one of which was the corporate takeover of our country. I'm guessing that now with The Dumpsters and the colluding Repugnantans we're going to see the US drop even further down the list, maybe even into a hybrid regime bordering on authoritarianism, if not dropping all the way into an authoritarian regime. Note that Russia, Dump's role model, was dropped to an authoritarian regime from a hybrid in 2016.
