Greatest Croatians of All Times

According to the poll conducted by Nacional:

1) Josip Broz Tito
2) Nikola Tesla
3) Ruđer Bošković (Rudjer Boskovic)
4) Miroslav Krleža (Miroslav Krleza)
5) Franjo Tudjman
6) Dražen Petrović (Drazen Petrovic)
7) Stipe Mesić (Stipe Mesic)
8) Ivo Andrić (Ivo Andric)
9) Tin Ujević (Tin Ujevic)
10) Stevo Karapandža (Stevo Karapandza)

Although I don't doubt the top results of this poll correspond to the sentiments of majority of Croatians, I consider it quite flawed. For example, Ivan Vučetić (Ivan Vucetic), inventor of fingerprinting, wasn't among proposed candidates. And Rafael Dropulić (Rafael Dropulic) was nowhere in sight, which makes this poll moot for majority of young Croatian women.
