The Voting Habits of Mythical Creatures

I’m pretty sure that polling has jumped the shark when they start asking people about their thoughts on Santa’s partisan voting habits. Yes, Santa’s party registration is up for debate in a new poll from a Democratic pollster.

But leave it to Jim Geraghty breaks down why this poll is likely wrong.

And just wait to see what he has to say about the Easter Bunny’s positions on public policy…

    Santa is definitely a progressive democrat, who else would give out so much stuff just to make people like him?

      I don’t know about that, I think that Geraghty makes a good case that Santa is likely a Republican, though he notes a mild libertarian streak, too.

      Plus, Santa doesn’t just come to houses to give out gifts. He takes cookies and milk! Geraghty notes that this is his form of profit, so it seems like he probably wouldn’t like Michelle Obama’s food initiatives very much.

    Let’s see, he gives kids free stuff paid for by their parents… Must be a Democrat.

    It’s an old PR trick. Do a fun poll that will get lots of play. I remember one for one company (that had the founder’s Irish name) That was “60% of Americans claiming to be Irish can’t recognize the flag of Ireland”

    The Flying Spaghetti Monster is still Libertarian, right?

      I don’t know. Has he been thoroughly vetted on his foreign policy positions? He might not be pure enough.
