No Makeup. No Digital Enhancement. He Won Through Sheer Force of Personality 

At long last George Bush knows how it feels to finish first in the balloting. From IMDB's WENN News, courtesy of Zemblan patriot J.D.:
American President George W. Bush has topped an unlikely poll in Britain - as this year's top screen villain. Bush won the dubious accolade for his unauthorized appearance in Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. The politician beat out the likes of Doc Ock, played by Alfred Molina, in Spider-Man 2; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Leatherface; Andy Serkis' Gollum from Lord Of The Rings trilogy; and Elle Driver, the assassin played by Daryl Hannah in Kill Bill. Almost 10,000 people voted in the poll, conducted by Total Film Magazine.
President Bush is plainly the best screen villain, but which screen villain would make the best President? Let's put it this way: Doc Ock believes in stem-cell research; Elle Driver has actually experienced combat; and Leatherface has no equal when it comes to clearin' brush.

Bush vs. Gollum? That'd be pretty much of a toss-up.
