What's West Wing?
It's a rather popular TV show in its seventh season on NBC, about a contemporary fictional US presidency and his administration. The names in the poll are the candidates to be the next president.

The show is ending with this season.
What's TV?

Isn't our current presidency fictitious? Why would we need a TV show for that?
Looks like the people who care to vote in this poll are mostly for Santos. Not surprising, I suppose. I'm also not surprised that no one's voting for a third-party candidate, as we haven't seen one in the show.

(As of this reply, the vote tally is as follows:
Santos - 9 votes - 47.4%
Vinick - 6 votes - 31.6%
Third-party - 0 votes - 0%
Undecided - 4 votes - 21.1%

Personally, although I agree with Vinick on nuclear power despite what happened in the last episode, I'm still planning to vote for Santos.
Actually, there was another Democrat running as a third-party candidate, but he bowed out a few weeks ago.

I think the Santos-McGarry bumper sticker on my car speaks for itself, however I'd even take Arnie Vinnick over *all* the choices we've had for President in the last two "real" elections.
