While Simon Cowell and David Cook seem firm in their conviction little David Archuleta stole the finale and the Season 7 American Idol contest, some pollsters, bookies and PEOPLE subscribers would beg to differ.
"I have to concede it: The kid came out all three songs and nailed it. But I walk away from this with my head held high."
Nonetheless, according to E! Online, the bookies at BetCRIS are favoring David Cook with a 74% chance of winning the contest. E! Online's user poll provides the same edge to Cook, and a PEOPLE.com poll yields nearly two thirds of the vote to him versus Archie. I think Paula will need a stiff one to get through this night.
