Agreement and Disagreement on the U.S. Supreme Court

The Upshot has a table showing how often the various justices on the U.S. Supreme Court agree with each other.  Unsurprisingly, the two justices that most often agree are Kagan and Sotomayor at 94%.  What is more surprising is that the lowest ratio of agreement is 65%.  Alito and Thomas share that ratio with Ginsburg.  There is more harmony on the court than news reports would have us believe.
