Because of the way in which income was grouped, it is difficult to construct more precise categories than this. If we categorize income into three (effectively dividing the ‘middle class’ group into two), then we see the same patterns as shown here. That is, people in the top third of the income distribution are not noticeably different from those in the middle third, but those in the top 60% or so are different from the people with the lowest incomes. While this income-based measure is not ideal for discriminating among employees, measures of occupational class are unfortunately even less consistent over the 2002–11 period.

If parties offer distinct economic policy packages (either left or right wing), and voters’ policy positions are determined by their social position, then the result is increased voting along cleavage lines.

We then test our ideas using INES data from the 2002–11 studies. We conclude with a discussion of the importance of the findings for our understanding of the determinants of voting behaviour in Ireland and also the more general significance of ‘realigning’ elections and social cleavage politics.
