The results are in (at least two days' worth). It seems the voting is pretty consistent with the comments we usually see on the board (at least the numbers were in line with my expectations). Citibank takes a commanding lead, with Amercan Express coming in a respectable second. Rounding out the bottom are First USA, Next Card and Fleet was dead last.

Below is a tabular representation of the the data. For the sake of space, "5" represents an "Excellent!" vote, and "1" represents "Awful." "Tot" is the total number of votes, and "Avg" is the mean score calculated by weighting each vote on the 5 point scale described above. The high and low numbers in each column are highlighed (bold) for easy viewing. And, if you'd still like to vote for a card you hold (or just view the results of each poll), all the links are there.

I know I left some companies out. If anyone has any more suggestions for additional companies to poll for, let's have 'em. So far we've had a request for Diner's Club, and I thought of Associates and Bank of America. Any others?
