The random choice is horribly underrepresented in the results.

First off, I think you mean *over*represented, since nearly 1/4th the people picked it.
Secondly, you are assuming that 100% are voting randomly. If we assume that 1/8th of the random voters picked "random", then the majority of the "random" votes probably came from people who "pick an answer and vote for another". :-)
