The question was: Which race will your hunter be after Cataclysm is released and race changes are made available?
Worgen - 254 Votes (26%)
Night elf - 113 Votes (11%)
Goblin - 110 Votes (11%)
Orc - 99 Votes (10%)
Troll - 99 Votes (10%)
Undead - 71 Votes (7%)
Human - 70 Votes (7%)
Dwarf - 61 Votes (6%)
Blood elf - 44 Votes (4%)
Tauren - 24 Votes (2%)
Draenei - 20 Votes (2%)
I was surprised with the results of the Hunter racial poll.
I didn't realize that Trolls would be as popular as Orcs.
I expected Goblins to also fair better than Worgens as a jump forward seems to clearly be better than a sprint ability in PvP (unless you would be immune to slowing effects when under sprint). I expect that the reason Worgens might be so popular is because of their unique look. It would basically be like have two beasts as a Hunter (yourself and your pet).
The Tauren and Draenei races got very little love in this poll.
I'll be interested to see what racial changes blizzard will make come Cataclysm. I might just have to redo this poll after those changes are announced.
On a side note, patch 3.3 has been released on the PTR and some initial changes are up. I will probably put up a 3.3 Hunter Patch compilation page sometime over the next few days.
