The UK also has this problem. For example, the Tories in 2017 reached a turning point where the majority of their donations come from dead people's legacies. That will only grow over time.
So with this type of funding model, not only is there a bias toward the superwealthy's minority interests over majority preference, but a new complication where parties are bending to the preferences of the dead instead of the living.
