Public Policy Polling — unofficial motto: "Pay Attention to Us!" — finds that 44% of Americans believe Santa is a Democrat, 28% say he is a Republican, while the remainder are annoyed that they can no longer distinguish between crank calls and PPP surveys.
Both sides have their arguments. Santa's prodigious gift-giving reputation rivals any Democrat's commitment to entitlement spending. On the other hand, an old white man who runs an off-shore workshop in a business-friendly territory — the North Pole is definitely a "right to work" state — and exploits the labor of "elves" has plenty of reasons to vote Republican.
The poll also found that “If Grandma got run over by a reindeer," 61% of respondents would not press charges and 24% would. Only 19% of Republicans would press charges, compared to 33% of Democrats, which is what happens when you have a political party overrun with trial lawyers.
