Pope pulls into lead at Islam Online's Person of the Year poll

Thanks once again to Cliff May of National Review's Corner blog for drawing attention to the Islam Online Person of the Year Internet poll.

When I posted last night about the early tally of the balloting. At that time, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah had a commanding lead over the other nominees with 69 percent of the vote, with Hamas leader Ismael Haniya (15 percent) and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (7 percent).

Things look much better tonight. My choice, Pope Benedict XVI has pulled into the lead with 32 percent of the vote. Trailing closely behind the Holy Father is Hezbollah's Nasrallah with 30 percent. Haniya has just 18 percent now, and Ahmadinejad is holding steady with 7 percent.

As they say in Chicago, vote early and vote often.
