Your Favorite Member Of The Rat Pack Is!?!

I wanted to thank everybody who voted in the poll. This is the first time I've ever done a poll on this blog. I think it was a smashing success.

And the winner is!?!

Of course, Dean Martin! Dean Martin had 68 votes. I was thinking that he probably would win this poll, but I actually thought it might be closer than it turned out to be. Wow. That is so awesome. It definitely shows he's the King of Cool.

Frank Sinatra came in second place with 26 votes.


sinatra

Sammy Davis Jr. came in third with 17 votes.

Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford rounded out the list. I hate to admit it, but I wasn't sure if anybody at all would vote for either one of them.

Peter Lawford had only two votes.

Lawford, Peter_02

Poor Joey Bishop came in last place. He had only one vote.

The results were in the order that I thought they might end up in. I figured Dino and Frank would take the top two spots. I did think it would be more neck and neck than it was. Dino blew away the competition. I was pretty much Sammy would be in third place. It doesn't surprise me that Joey and Peter barely even registered in this poll.


Thanks again for voting. I really appreciate it.

Wow, I didn't expect Dean Martin to trounce Frank! Admittedly, Frank Sinatra's my favorite so I'm a little biased ;)

Keith said...

Hey Kate. I wasn't sure how it would go. I thought Dean might pull it off, but I figured it would be neck and neck.

Leah said...

Better luck next time Frankie... I was rooting for you.

Keith said...

Hey Leah. Sorry about Frankie.

Savvy Gal said...

i expect the same result. : )

Choo said...

Frank Sinatra is the best

Protege said...

Ah yes, I voted for Dean.;))
But now looking at the picture of Peter Lawford, I have to say he is indeed a handsome man. I guess the disadvantage he has, at least in my case, is that I know very little about him.
They are all cool gentlemen though.;)) I wish more of those were still around today.;)

As the man said, "That's life!"

Jessica Cangiano said...

I really wasn't sure who was going to come out victorious amongst Frank and Dean. I wouldn't have been surprised with either fellow taking top honours. Both, and all their fellow Rat Pack members, are definitely winners in my books :)


Have a fantastic Wednesday, Keith!
♥ Jessica

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

I feel right bad for Peter and Joey.

Maggi said...

That poll was so fun! And I decided not to pity vote Lawford, I went for Sinatra! lol

Keith said...

Hey Savvy. Thanks.

Hey Choo. I do like Sinatra

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks. I voted for Dean. I like all the guys. I think what does hurt Peter and Joey both is that a lot of people don't know them that well. You see things all the time about Dean, Frank & Sammy. The other guys had movies, tv shows, you name it. They just seemed to be more in the background I guess.

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. That's become my favorite thing to say recently.

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I wasn't totally sure Dino would pull it off when I started this poll. Sinatra is hugely popular. I did think it might win it. As the poll started I got much more confidant. I love all these guys.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Me too.

Hey Maggi. I don't know if somebody gave Peter and Joey pity votes or if those are really their favorites.

Drake said...

Being the cool guy that he is, Dino will celebrate his win by buying a round or two for the rat pack. :)

JFK Jean said...

That pic of Bishop looks like he already knew he'd come in last place and he's merely accepting it lol.

Wolf Boy said...

My man came in third.

Mondo said...

I must admit I voted for Frank

Etrapar said...

ou, my dear Frank Sinatra..second place? it's not fair but doesn't matter, for me he's on first place *.^
kisses

Keith said...

Hey Drake. You know what. You are so right about that. I wish I could hang out with those guys and have some drinks.

Keith said...

Hey JFK. LOL So true. It was hard to find a pic of him or Peter. Joey always looks that way.

dino martin peters said...

Hey pallie, likes you didn't expect our Dino to win by a landslide......gotta have more faith in our Dino...after all never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool...oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth....long live our Master of Hip, our King of Cool, our Ruler of Randy....

Keith said...

Hey Dave. Nothing wrong with that. I like Frank.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Sammy would have been my next vote.

Keith said...

Hey Sonia. Thanks for voting. Sinatra is awesome whether he came in second in this poll or not.

Keith said...

Hey pallie. I was hoping that people would see it that way, but you can never tell with others. It didn't take long for me to realize that Dino was going to win by a huge margin.

Erika said...

I honestly thought Old Blue Eyes would win! :)

janettaylor said...

J'adore Dean! :-)


X♥X♥

Keith said...

Hey Erika. I thought it was going to be tight.

Keith said...

Thanks Janet.

E.K. said...

Oh man I feel so bad for Joey Bishop!

Keith said...

Hey E.K. I do too.

Wana said...

i wanted frank to win!! *crying!*
just 26 votes?!! nooooooo.

Keith said...

Hey Wana. I was surprised that there was such a huge gap between Dean and Frank on this poll.

Couture Carrie said...

Keith said...

Thanks Carrie. I had a lot of fun with this one.

KIRAFASHION said...

All men here are incredible cool! Congratulations for them all and for everyone who voted!

Many kisses Keith!
You are fab!

Gabbi said...

Awesome poll Keith! I very much agree with the results also... Dino was my fave too. I think partly because of his films with Jerry. I loved those films when I was little girl.♥

Ela said...

Good thing your blog is named the Dino Lounge :)
He is pretty fabulous. My picks came 2nd and 3rd so that's OK :)

Niki B. said...

thats a tough poll, i'm glad i didn't vote i wouldn't have been able to choose. but congrats to dean. haha

Terence Sambo said...

Of course it had to be Dean Martin lol :o]

drollgirl said...

i think it would be hilarious if you interviewed the guy (or chick) that voted for joey bishop and asked for an explanation! hahahahah

clarewbrown said...

Cool! I wish Sammy had won though! This was fun. I want you do to another poll! Maybe with Bond Girls?

Eden said...

sinatra and dean martin, my absolute favourites! hope you're having a good day love!

xxoo

Keith said...

Hey Kira. Thanks. I think you're fab too. I love all of these guys. They are all cool cats to me. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the poll and its result. My first intro to Dino was basically through his movies with Jerry. I always loved those movies. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Ela. Yeah, I know what you mean. I did vote for Dino. Sammy is my second favorite member of the gang. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Niki. Thanks for commenting. That's okay that you didn't vote. It can be hard to decide.

Keith said...

Hey Terence. No doubt about that. :-)

Keith said...

Hey Droll. LOL Good idea. I wonder if the person will actually admit they voted for Joey. Plus I wonder who the 2 votes for Peter came from.

Keith said...

Hey Clare. Thanks. I enjoyed this poll. Sammy is my second favorite of these cool cats. My sis wants me to do a poll to pick everybody's favorite Bond. That's next up. I may have to do one on Bond girls. Good idea.

Keith said...

Hey Eden. Thanks. Dean and Frank are both such cool cats. I'm doing well. Hope you are too. Cheers!

Cheryl Lynn said...

Yaaay! This poll was way cool!

Can't wait to see your next one.
Have a great afternoon.

Marian said...
