6. My answer is no.

We no longer have a free press, and haven't for a long time. We no longer have any integrity to our elections.

The candidate and party that wins fewer votes ends up in power, and nobody can even say with any authority how many votes someone got, as our elections are unauditable, while millions of people are being out and out disenfranchised.

I fear that we are going to become even less democratic than we currently are, but I strongly believe that we are already not a democracy.
