One of the elements of a democracy is party pluralism or the existence of multiple political parties. What the author is trying to say is that without the major political parties being able to reach all economic classes anywhere in the US, Democracy in the United States would never have been able to work.

Consider a nation with only one party. There's no choice, no competition. Elections don't mean anything, whereas in a democracy, the governed have a choice and can support and vote for the party they believe has their best interests at heart.
