Rise of the demagogue in American elections

Vox presents a look at the current Republican political landscape, the media that feeds on itself, and why it may be out of scope with what the founding fathers established.  Note that this was produced before the election and supposes (wrongly) that Trump would lose, making it that much more pointed.
