Brendan,
Whatever your view of the merits of the Bartels-Frank controversy, you should link to both sides' perspectives. This is a couple years' old link but it's something in that direction.

I'm not sure this gets to the heart of Frank's argument. As I understand it, he is not arguing that voters view the Republican party as a champion of the working class, but rather that working class voters are voting for Republicans even though the Democratic party better represents their interests. Instead they are voting on the basis of moral convictions, shared values, etc.

Frank may be wrong, but this study seems to misstate the question.
