which one most reflects American democracy?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The elitist theory is the most reflective of the american democracy. This is because only a certain elite class of individuals tend  to influence policy. These individuals influenv=ce and lobby for policy in both goverment and the corporate world. Policy change is a reserve of individuals rather than groups

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Im looking back at the question now and it was worded as "which of the four do most political scientists believe reflects American democracy?" and Im just double checking that its still the same answer, right?
