Here is how Kinky does when the poll doesn't allow his supporters to vote multiple times:

Kinky hasn't won a single poll among the 18 polls conducted by reputable polling firms, and he generally comes in 3rd.

Perry is going to win.

Bell will come in second.

Kinky in third.

Strayhorn fourth.

Let's all say a silent prayer of thanks for Kinky because if he wasn't running, Perry would be in trouble.

These are not purported to be anything but unofficial polling, freethinker.

I'll grant you that Perry will probably win, but Bell couldn't have won in a two-man race, and Kinky takes as many Perry votes as Gramma. It's hard to say in advance what impact his candicacy has in a 5-man race.

I'd be willing to wager that Friedman comes in no worse than 2nd if we could agree on a bet.
