Cambridge University: Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens - Study by Princeton and Northwestern Universities. The study focused on 1,779 policy issues and found that in all cases, the preferences of the wealthy economic elite were enacted into law, while “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” A study in the Political Research Quarterly corroborates that conclusion. Democrats were actually less responsive to low income Americans and more responsive to the wealthy than Republicans.

From the article: “American democracy is a sham, no matter how much it's pumped by the oligarchs who run the country (and who control the nation's "news" media). The U.S., in other words, is basically similar to Russia or most other dubious "electoral" "democratic" countries.”

We live in a corporate dictatorship.  The viewpoints of the average American voter do not count in the slightest.
