Do voters believe in Santa Claus?

There's a nice line from Andrew Rawnsley in his assessment of the Eastleigh impact for today's Observer.  After reviewing the list of UKIP manifesto pledges, which combine both a reduction in taxes for everyone and an increase in spending for everyone, Rawnsley says that UKIP "must be the only party to be led by people who still believe in Santa Claus".

Perhaps so.  But the greater concern is that it seems to be voted for by people with a similar belief pattern.
