The 'working poor' have done six-times better, Professor Bartels said on the latest edition of the BBC's Business Daily Program.
Democrats also presided over about 30% greater economic growth: an average of 2.8% per year compared with 1.6%.

"I've thought of myself as being a pretty apolitical political scientist," he said.
