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.

View the full results of the poll.
