The answer that led the poll with WND readers on Friday evening described Mandela as a "violent communist revolutionary who never should have been released from prison."

Other options included calling Mandela "a great revolutionary leader - in the tradition of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara and Nicolae Ceausescu," and a prediction that there would be "a racial bloodbath" after his death.

Another selection suggested "one of his greatest accomplishments was having a species of spiders named after him."

Along with the critical poll answers, there were some that praised Mandela's legacy. Those responses ranked low in the poll results as of Friday evening.
