I wouldn't count Heath Ledger's Joker, I would say "apart from Heath Ledger", he will win, and not by a small margin. I made this poll and Ledger had Hannibal Lecter, Keyser Soze, Hans Landa as competitors (stronger entries than the other Joker) and look at the result:

Off topic... Just some history ...

Conrad Veidt   ...  Gwynplaine / Lord Clancharlie 

Trivia
Gwynplaine's fixed grin and disturbing clown-like appearance
was a key inspiration for comic book talents
writer Bill Finger and artists Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson
in creating Batman's greatest enemy, The Joker.

Most poll takers would likely vote the same. The  Best 'Joker' poll suggestion is at least dissimilar enough that it asks about an individual actor's performance instead of the entire movie. One can like the movie without liking the performance or visa-versa.
