Current voting on the BigPoll indicates that the first three places in the qualifier round will indeed go to the front runners in the betting. Ukraine leads the BigPoll 2004, with a lead stretching over Greece in second place. Serbia & Montenegro are closing in on the 3rd place, having recently been tipped to win the qualifier round at both French and Portuguese OGAE meetings.
The Danish entry, a dark horse for some, is currently sitting comfortably in 4th place ahead of Cyprus in 5th place. Malta sits in 6th although they are a long way behind the top five, who must, based on this evidence, be certain at this stage to qualify for the final.
Behind Malta sits Belarus on their debut year in 7th, with Bosnia in 8th and The Netherlands in 9th place. According to the BigPoll results so far, the final qualification place will be heading to Finland although their lead over 11th placed Israel is shrinking.
Newcomers Albania and Andorra are currently placed 12th and 13th with the Macedonian entrant Tose Proeski in the 14th place and Croatia in 15th, all of whom will have hope that they can break into the top 10 on 12th May.
