THE OGAE INTERNATIONAL POLL
One of the truly untrustworthy polls ever made internationally, the OGAE INTERNATIONAL poll is ow giving current standings of 4 regional fan clubs (with 90!!!! votes – only).

At the end of this poll (which never predicts the winner) we will see around 200-400 voters only! But since the fan sites heavily promote this poll, we add it to our weekly review – just for … fun!
