Public Policy Polling just released their Holiday Poll. (No, I didn’t replace the word, ‘Christmas’ with ‘Holiday’ – that was the name of the poll – and Public Policy Polling isn’t engaging in the ‘War on Christmas’ – the poll covers other holidays as well.)
Of note, 500 people were polled and over half of those were over the age of 45. Democrats and Republicans were evenly split at 36% apiece, with Independent/Other rounding out the respondents.
By a 16% margin, poll respondents leaned toward Santa being a Democrat rather than a Republican, undoubtedly due to his generous nature. (Not sure that I agree with this consensus – Santa’s an old white guy, after all, so odds put him in the Republican camp. I guess I’d have to see his shop’s working conditions and how he treats his elves before settling on a verdict.) Regardless of Santa’s political affiliation, over half of respondents believe the “Fiscal Cliff” will force him to cut back on the goodies he’ll be bringing.
