Presidential Poll Update

The poll has been up for a little more than a week and it's been interesting to watch for a number of reasons.

By way of disclaimer, let me acknowledge that the response hasn't exactly been overwhelming. Nevertheless, the dynamics are worth noting.

As expected, it didn't take long for Alton's Army to show up. An Alton Brown fan out there was first on the scene, registering a quick vote for the Food Network star.

Then came the McCain camp, fresh on the heels of the Republican National Convention. McCain grabbed five quick votes and held a commanding lead heading into the weekend.

But slowly the support for Obama began to show itself. As of today, the Democrat has pushed into the lead with 9 votes, compared to McCain's 5 and Brown's single vote.

It's also been pointed out that I've left a significant name out of the poll. It's not Sarah Palin or Ron Paul, but Ralph Wiggum, who seems to have a swell of write-in support.

The election is still a long way off - 51 days from the date of this posting. It will be interesting to see how this develops.
