Donald Trump’s nearness to the presidency rests on two separate accomplishments — or, if you prefer, two separate institutional failures — that are often conflated. The first is his victory in the Republican Party’s presidential primaries. The second is his consolidation of elite Republicans, and of the Republican-leaning electorate. But it's important to zoom out, and make a structural analysis of what allowed these things to happen. And believe it or not, that’s where things get scary.
