Who'll still be alive at the end of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire?

Next month, A Dance With Dragons hits the bookshelves, and we get that much closer to the ending of George R.R. Martin's astounding A Song of Ice And Fire series.

And given Martin's penchant for killing off major characters at the drop of a dragon's egg, one thing is for sure: Not everybody is going to live to the end of Dance of Dragons. (This is not a spoiler. We haven't read the new book yet.) It's getting so we're starting to wonder: Is anybody safe?

So we've decided to have a poll on who's likeliest to survive until the end of A Dream of Spring. And maybe we can all use the results as a way of crowdsourcing the odds of survival of major characters — in case anybody's planning on placing any bets.

Warning: For the purposes of this post, and the comments thereof, we're assuming you've read through the end of A Feast for Crows.
