Jim, some people claim showing intermediate results of a vote can alter the final result, encouraging some to vote or putting some others off. What do you think?

Luc. This is possible but I have merely reproduced the voting information on the Wine Blog Trophy site. I was careful not to urge a vote for any of the participants.

My post has not changed the voting order for the five leading contenders, who votes have hardly changed.

Of more relevance, I think, is the realtive lack of interest in this competition. The five leading bloggers have only amassed just over 1000 votes in total.
