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.

    The Heater

    BRADENTON — In a perfect world Matt Duffy would have been in New York on Monday with his Rays teammates enjoying the final off day of the year. Instead, he was on Field 4 at Pirate City on a sweltering afternoon, trying to restart his season.
