The jolly man in the red suit may be a Democrat - at least according to a new poll.
The poll was released this week by Public Policy Polling. Of the 500 voters surveyed, 44 percent said Santa was a Democrat while only 28 percent said Santa Claus was a Republican.
The majority of voters, 54 percent, said they were concerned that the looming "fiscal cliff" could cause Santa to cut back on his gifts this year.
