Wealthy white folk.

I didn't get that from the article. I saw three individual factors, not combined factors:

1. Race
2. Education
3. Wealth

So, white or well educated or wealthy is good. Big surprise. But I would assume overlaps abound? Actually, looking at the three charts, the order of importance seems to be:

1. Education (current top level over 60%)
2. Wealth (current top level approaching 60%)
3. Race (current top level just rose above 50%)

The largest variance from bottom group to top group looks like wealth (30% to 60%).
