Is Santa Claus a Democrat or Republican? The Answer Is a No-Brainer!

When we look back on 2012, there's no doubt we'll talk about it being an election year. But the presidential battle aside, it was a year jam-packed with intense political battles. So it's no wonder that even though the general election was decided over a month ago, somehow partisan politics have bled into the holiday season. Yup, there's actual speculation on what side of the aisleSanta Claus himself falls on. 

So, does Jolly Ol' Saint Nick identify as aDemocrat or a RepublicanPublic Policy Polling recently asked voters, and the result actually makes a lot of sense ...

According to 44 percent of American voters, Santa Claus is a Democrat. Meanwhile, 28 percent say he's a Republican, and another 28 percent aren't sure. But clearly the majority knows what's up. Santa's obviously a Dem, because he ... 

  1. ... made his life's work about "spreading the wealth." Every year, the guy levels the class warfare battlefield by caring for every boy and girl -- no matter where they live or what tax bracket they're in.
  2. ... believes a Tea Party is one that involves a brand new tea set made by his elves.
  3. ... aims to deliver presents to 100 percent of the people. Not just 47.
  4. ... is as old as time. Thus, he must value the elderly and would give them Medicare if that's all they wanted for Christmas.
  5. ... would very, very rarely say no (unless you've been very naughty). Unlike Republicans who only know how to say no, no matter how naughty or nice President Obama has been.

What would you say Santa's political affiliation is?

Does Santa spend other people's money in the name of  "spreading the wealth"  ????

He's a Dumbocrat if he does.

Surprised the Republicans like him at all - using their logic, he's just giving away freebies to a bunch of moochers...

Definitely a no-brainer. A ultra leftwing liberal Santa Claus would steal from all the boys and girls of the world.

The real Christmas Santa Claus is a conservative/libertarian Republican - because no one is forcing him to give to people. He chooses to give to whomever he wishes, by whatever criteria he chooses. That's called charity, not taxing the successful.

  1. ... made his life's work about "spreading the wealth." Every year, the guy levels the class warfare battlefield by caring for every boy and girl -- no matter where they live or what tax bracket they're in. Where do you think his "wealth" comes from? Has anyone ever "seen" his wealth? How does he earn his money? Does he pay taxes on it? Where is his bank account located?? Republican
  2. ... believes a Tea Party is one that involves a brand new tea set made by his elves. No argument there...Democrat
  3. ... aims to deliver presents to 100 percent of the people. Not just 47. Actually, he only delivers to children that "believe" so say up to age 10? Wouldn't you say that's about 47% of the population? Republican
  4. ... is as old as time. Thus, he must value the elderly and would give them Medicare if that's all they wanted for Christmas.If he valued the elderly he'd still be putting gifts for them under the tree. So you can't say what he WOULD do...Republican
  5. ... would very, very rarely say no (unless you've been very naughty). Unlike Republicans who only know how to say no, no matter how naughty or nice President Obama has been. Technically he does say "NO" to those that don't believe so let's split this one, and call it....Independent...

Therefor IMHO, Santa is an Independant..he holds a little bit of both. Just enough to appeal to each side and not really get in trouble. LOL
