After the first day, here are the top 5 Papables:


1. Pres. Peter Turkson – 16%

Leading the votes is Peter Turkson, the President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

In second place is Angelo Scola, the Archbishop of Milan.

Vote for Scola.


3. Pref. Marc Ouellet – 12%

In third place is the only Canadian Papable, Marc Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation of Bishops.

Vote for Ouellet.


4. Unknown – 9%

The fourth vote-getter is an unknown–not one of the top 15 Papables we selected.  It is impossible to list everyone, so if you aren’t sure, vote “Unknown.”


5. Abp. John Onaiyekan – 6%

In 5th place is John Onaiyekan, Archbishop of Abuja.

Vote for Onaiyekan.
