(Newser) – Seems the North Pole is a blue state. According to 44% of American voters, Santa Claus is a Democrat. Some 28% say he's a Republican, and another 28% aren't quite sure, finds a survey by Public Policy Polling. And when it comes to the naughty-nice spectrum, Mitt Romney fares better than President Obama: Some 63% say Mitt has been well-behaved this year, compared to 37% who say he'll get a lump of coal; 51% think Obama has been nice, while 49% say he's been naughty, the Hill reports.

As for a secular "war on Christmas," 47% say it exists, compared to some 40% who don't believe it. (Here's looking at you, Jon Stewart.) The poll's findings get quirkier from there. Sample: "If Grandma got run over by a reindeer, would you press charges against Santa?" Lucky for him, 61% said no. And watch out, Mommy: If you kiss Santa, 43% of voters will tell Daddy.

He has his workforce working 365 days a year. Clearly Republican.

Willingly giving away his riches? That describes neither.
