Thats untrue, there are many more supporters than 13 (actually its 14 who
voted in public you cant count)
i didnt vote so make it 15 and theres quite a few more who only expressed
their support privately to me.

Its still a comparission of apples to oranges though, one is a vote the
other a signature list made by exhaustively asking people
