Who Will Wear the Pink Jersey After Stage 4?

Who will be wearing the pink jersey tomorrow after tomorrow's Stage 4 which includes the Croce d’Aune climb, and a mountaintop finish at San Martino di Castrozza in the Dolmites? A poll of Italian cycling fans has these results right now:

Armstrong 25.2%
Di Luca 25.0%
Cunego 16.6%
Basso 13.1%
Leipheimer 5.9%
Simoni 4.6%
Pellizotti 2.8%
Bruseghin 2.7%
Sastre 2.2%
Menchov 1.8%

The results make sense given the GC:
1 Alessandro Petacchi (Ita) LPR Brakes - Farnese Vini 8.50.06
2 Tyler Farrar (USA) Garmin - Slipstream 0.08 back
3 Michael Rogers (Aus) Team Columbia - Highroad 0.18
4 Thomas Lövkvist (Swe) Team Columbia - Highroad
5 Lance Armstrong (USA) Astana 0.31
6 Danilo Di Luca (Ita) LPR Brakes - Farnese Vini 0.40
7 Yaroslav Popovych (Ukr) Astana 0.44
8 Levi Leipheimer (USA) Astana
9 Andriy Grivko (Ukr) ISD 0.45
10 Francesco Gavazzi (Ita) Lampre - N.G.C. 0.52
