But Adolf's a Democrat

Hillary's a Republican

At the conservative website, reporter Patrick Howley had some fun with a web toy that tells you "the partisan affiliation of baby names." The widget, from campaign analytics company Clarity Labs, lets you put in a first name and it will match the name to the number of registered voters and their party affiliation. Howley ran a few infamous names and got these results:

55.5 percent of the 1,559 registered voters named Adolf are Democrats, Fidel clocked in at 72.8% Democrat, Benito at 72%, Genghis at 73%, Vladimir at 59.7%, and Saddam at 81.2%.

The liberal website quickly struck back with a few name results of its own:

73.8% of voters named Jesus are just all right with being Democrats.

While a majority of those named Ronald are indeed Republicans, it's only 53% to 47%.

There are only 63 registered voters named Mitt; 56.4% of them are Democrats anyway.

There are way more Democrats named Sarah (54.4% of 806,471 Sarahs) than Hillary (54.9% of 27,919 Hillarys).

Karl is not a very Marxist name (53% Republican).

Cletus is a narrowly more-Republican name (51.9%), as are Skeeter (52%) and Bubba (54.4%).

Dwight is more Democratic somehow (54.4%), even though any kids named after the character on The Office have yet to reach voting age.

God is a Democrat — 86% of the time (out of 21 registered voters.)

Reince isn't even in the database.

    Local Government

    ST. PETERSBURG — For months the cost of the city's sewage crisis has been measured in terms of environmental damage, legal ramifications and political repercussions.

    Now residents are about to get the bill.

    Signs at North Shore Park in St. Petersburg warn people in September 2016 to stay out of the water due to contamination from partially treated sewage during the height of the city's sewage crisis. Now the City Council is considering how much to raise utility rates to pay the $326 million bill to fix St. Petersburg's sewage system. [LARA CERRI   |   Times]
