Does "Big Money" have more influence on politics than it used to?

That chart is from The Angry Economist, showing  the ratio of federal spending to spending by presidential candidates.  He counsels "If you want them to spend less, expect them to do less."

NB This also doesn't account for the fact that there are almost half again as many potential voters in America to convince today as there were in 1976.
