PPP’s new holiday season poll sees voters in giving moods towards both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney – voters believe both men will be receiving presents from Santa this holiday season rather than a lump of coal, with Romney perhaps getting some sympathy presents. Voters say Romney will get presents by a 63/37 margin compared to 51/49 for Obama. Some other findings:
- 44% of respondents said Santa was a Democrat while 28% say he is a Republican.
- 54% of voters said they were concerned that the looming “fiscal cliff” could cause Santa to cut back on his benefits.
- More voters than not (47/40) say there is a “War on Christmas”.
