The British populace take to the polls today to decide the General Election - but West Bromwich Albion defender Darren Moore must wish the public were voting for the outcome of the Premiership's relegation battle instead.
While Labour are likely to remain in power, the fourway struggle to stay in the top-flight of English football is a lot harder to call.
However Moore believes the Baggies' spirited attempt to stay in the Premiership after being universally written off at Christmas has captured the public ' s imagination.
And the defender says most neutrals are hoping Albion escape the drop at the expense of Norwich City, Crystal Palace or Southampton.
"I think everyone appreciates the league we are playing in is probably the best in the world," said Moore.
"We were rooted to the bottom and eight points adrift but now we are within striking distance of keeping this club in the Premiership.
"We are very grateful that a lot of neutrals are supporting us and people from different clubs. I think everyone has appreciated the efforts put in here and they are behind us."
Albion, who have lost five times in 14 games this year, pulled clear of the relegation zone last month, but a return of just two points from fixtures against Tottenham Hotspur, Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Arsenal has seen the Baggies slip to 19th.
With two games remaining, Robson's side now face the unenviable task of trying to beat Manchester United at old Trafford on Saturday - knowing defeat combined with a victory for either Saints or Palace at Selhurst Park will relegate Albion.
The Baggies have the small luxury of knowing what result they definitely need on Saturday to take their survival battle to the final day of the season as they kick-off at Old Trafford at 5.15pm after the other games have finished but Moore still knows it will take a monumental effort from everyone in the Albion team this weekend to ensure their match at home to Portsmouth a week on Sunday is not meaningless.
He added: "Make no mistake, for us to come away with a result up there, then all of us - from one to 11 - have to have the games of our lives really. We know that but that is the challenge that has been put in front of us."
Moore, who returned to the side in Monday's 2-0 home defeat to Arsenal, has praised Robson for giving Albion a chance of beating the drop at this late stage of the campaign because they were marooned at the bottom four months ago.
Moore said: "I don't think anyone would have thought it would come down to this two months ago but that is credit to the players for responding to the manager.
"The management staff have come into the club at a difficult time and given everyone the inner belief we can stay in this division and compete against the best.
"That's what has been installed in us since Christmas and we just have to continue to show the form which has got us in this position."
The defender also said he and his team-mates were conscious Manchester United was the club where Robson made his name as a player and it would be an added indignity for the Baggies boss if his side were to be relegated at Old Trafford.
Moore added: "I am sure the Manchester public don't want to see a side of Bryan Robson's relegated but unfortunately we are in this situation.
"We just have to go up there and give our all for the fans, the manager and this football club."
* Moore was talking at the launch of the club's new street soccer project Urban Goals. Albion have teamed up with T-Mobile and Sportsmatch to provide a giant inflatable pitch which will deliver football to six inner city venues in the region.
The project aims to find the best four-a-side team at Under-15 level for boys and Under-12s for girls. For more information contact 08700 662840.
