At the conservative website DailyCaller.com, 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 Wonkette.com 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.
