Republicanism unites owners and workers!

Matthew Yglesias recently posted this interesting chart from Andrew Gelman:

The graphs show support for Republicans compared to the national average by occupational group for the last 50 years. An upward slope means increasing support for Republicans. Business owners and skilled workers show the largest increases in Republicanism, with non-skilled workers not far behind (though they are still slightly more Democratic than the national average).

Meanwhile, professionals and office workers have become more Democratic.
