Charts like this never get old

A nice piece in the Economist summarizing some of the more recent political science attempts to explain Trump.  So, okay, not new, but is it wrong that I feel a bit of smug satisfaction every time I see a chart like this?

I think it is because Trump is so self-evidently, truly, horrible that it actually makes me feel better to think that so much of his support is actually driven by racism.  Anyway, more good stuff at the post.
