98. Impossible.

In a system where massive accumulations of wealth are the norm to pretend that wealth does not have a bearing on politics is ludicrous. It is the delusion of bourgeois democracy that the existence of great wealth and political power can be separated, a delusion foisted upon the masses but one that the ruling class does not share. That is how they ride roughshod over us and we don't even know what hit us. If we want democracy then capitalism must go, and I might add that if we want nature and survival then it is equally necessary that capitalism be abandoned asap.
