This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Fordham, the program's backup host, beat Stefanovic (16 percent) to second place in the hearts of Australians with 19 percent of the vote.

Stefanovic is "widely reported" to be the top earner on Today despite Wilkinson's denial of any such pay inequalities.

However, Stefanovic's position as alpha male could be under threat with the poll results showing that there could be a major shift on the program and asks the big question: could Today field all-female hosts for the show?

Yes, that's right. News presenter Sylvia Jeffreys is hot on the heels of both Stefanovic and Fordham with 12 percent of the vote and a Wilkinson-Jeffreys partnership could offer a strong case to lead the show.

Meanwhile, sports presenter Tim Gilbert took home nine percent of the vote and Wilkins, the shows long-running entertainment reporter, rounded out the vote with a measly four percent.
