Who will win American Idol - Cook or Archuleta?

Today Syesha Mercado was sent back home - congratulations - your votes accurately predicted that in our previous poll:
Who will win? Cook, Archuleta or Mercado?

We have now one week to vote for Cook or Archuleta. Who do you think will be the 2008 American Idol?

Did you guys watch the program tonight? They presented the visit each one of the top 3 finalists did in their home city. Everyone was received extremely well, but the one that was the most artist-like in their comments, behavior and attitude was Cook.

Archuleta was little mama's boy.

As if I didn't like American Idol enough before, now that it's been admitted that it's all scripted, it's completely and entirely worthless.

What do you mean? I'm not sure that's true. America is voting, so whatever the judges say doesn't really impact the final selection but what we vote. If there is a script is for the judges.

I hate American Idol with a passion. First two weeks are funny, but that's it.

I didn't watch the show the previous seasons, but my two older kids are now dragging my wife and I to watch it. We're even using our AT&T cellphones to vote! Anyway - it's fun to watch (not as fun as driving my Bimmer though)

I agree. Seyesha needs to keep her hair down. She looks like shit with her afro puff her. I don't get why when she cries she says she's happy, she looks very sad. Crying happy people have a surreal happy stunned look on their faces. It was wierd.

I would like to see David A. put together one complete sentence. The kid spits out three words giggles, a word or two more, and more giggles, Annoying. On the good side, his mom looks like she's a cougar though.

Yea, Cook is definitely the most professional. I really liked that he went to thank his music teacher. He made her the most happy lady for the rest of her life.

What about Fantasia's performance? She looked exactly like one of the crazy guys in the video for California Love. And Simon's expression the entire time was classic. It said it all.....WTF? She actually won here, and has a record deal?

As for all the haters, no comment. This is the first season I've ever watched. And I use to rag on everyone that watched it in the past. So I know where yall are coming from.

I watched the news right after and they siad "Fantasia reminded everyone why she won American Idol" and I replied back to my TV she reminded us why she cant sell a record.

Simon's expression was right on ... she look like the chick from the video someone posted on here Soulja Girl

You guys all realize thats the part thats scripted right? The top 20 or 16 or what ever it is that the real show starts with is already picked prior to tryouts. All the real crazy people are mostly actors. I have a good friend who works for Fox and has told me about that since day 1. America really votes and eliminates those people down to the final one person thou.

Two more days to go. I'm not surprised to see Cook as the #1 choice here, as this is mostly a guys forum, and his rock style fits most of us here (I don't think a lot of teenage girls visit this forum).

However, I saw some other polls online, that show interesting results.

Quote:
E! Online has also set up a poll, and it seems the voters here agree to the oddmakers on BetCRIS. Or could it be that David Cook’s fans are accessing the internet more? However, the results of the E! Online poll give Archuleta even less chances to win than the BetCRIS poll: about 24 percent. While the other David is believed to have about 75 percent chances of winning.
EFluxMedia

Quote:
According to the Dial Idol Web site, which traces voting patterns, David Archuleta was leading the race after the first shows, but he was later surpassed by David Cook, who was the No.1 Idol in the rounds of 10, 7, 6, 4 and also this week’s round 3. Archuleta’s decline was probably due to his lack of originality.
EFLuxMedia

Many other sites show Cook as the leader, for example Ellen Degeneres poll has him leading as well.
