Keywords: Redistribution | Welfare State | Electoral Behaviour | Class Voting

This paper focuses on the interplay between redistributive and electoral politics. The paper develops an argument where the relationship between class and voting is understood as a dynamic process driven by the government policy choices about redistribution. Empirically, it shows how the shape and internal composition of the constituency of the socialist governments changed as a result of the redistributive policies they implemented. In so doing the paper challenges both the thesis about the declining significance of class and the most deterministic conceptions of class voting.
