I do it to show how close some of the votes were between some prospects. Sometimes it's interesting to know how close the vote was.

Additionally, if people are that easily influenced in their votes, then that's there choice, but I think most voters will continue to vote for who they like until such time as the guy they are voting for is the one who gets the most votes, and then they move on. I really doubt that posting the results of who finished second influences much, and as you said, Pearson this year was a runner-up twice before getting voted in.

Also, I have only been doing this poll for last year and this year, so I have no input on what happened before that.
