"And it turns out that US politics really is one-dimensional, that once you know where politicians stand on a scale that clearly has to do with taxation and the size of the welfare state, you can predict their votes very well.

That's my understanding too, but that's not census data. If you click on the picture you get a link to FAIR and from there a link (http://www.cbo.gov/doc.cfm?index=12485) to the CBO, who compiled the data from the IRS.
