The results in Illinois aren't that unusual.

As the old IWW used to point out (correctly for the most part), old
Socialist Party almost always ran better among skilled workers than
industrial workers.  There were lots of reasons for it, including the lower
rate of voting and the higher incident of fraud among the latter, less
leisure to give electoral politics than the former.  All of these reasons
still apply in the present.

As in the past, the answer is to keep plugging away.  The only way the Green
electorate can expand is address these constituencies.
