Yes and no.
The Skull Kid with Majora's Mask on is a one-off, yes. But the actual Skull Kid is the one you play Saria's Song for in OoT to get the Heart Piece (and give the Skull Mask to).
And there's a Skull Kid in TP, which may or may not be the same one.
Regardless, while I like him, I don't think he is more deserving than anyone (other than Ghirahim) on that list, and there are certainly more important Zelda characters. Like Tingle or Vaati.

Majora's Mask for newcomer if that's the case!
Agreed, technically people should be voting for Majora, but it's also possible the logic is that you play Skull Kid with the mask on and then Final Smash would be dropping the Skull Kid and turning into Majora's Wrath. That's what I would want, anyway.
I don't even think nostalgia is it. I loved the game since launch, but for a long time, people hated it. All of the sudden people started hopping on the MM bandwagon (making people like me look like some kind of gaming hipster for liking something I always legitimately thought was one of the best in the series) out of nowhere.
I think people are voting for Skull Kid either in hopes that it will generate more interest for a 3D remake (read: port) or just to be ironic since he's not very deserving in the first place.
And I *love* Majora's Mask, so for me to say that my favorite game should NOT be represented over other characters should be a sign that the people voting in that poll are crazy.
But in the end, I don't really think that this poll means anything anyway. Sakurai's not going to really be interested in that poll, I would think. And from the sounds of it, the roster may not be getting a whole lot of newcomers and if that is the case, I doubt he'll clutter it with one-off characters or sub-characters.
