Since other questions are being pointed here as dupes, I'll update this question. From a technical standpoint, this was a separate issue than we have currently with caching. Since this question, we greatly changed how ViewCount is stored/processed/updated.
Starting last night new questions are cached significantly less than old questions, the current rules are:
This should improve the UI since a new question is where this caching is more apparent/strange looking.
Keep in mind this doesn't solve the issue, it just improves it. It would cause mass chaos to update the database on every view hit, so we collect a few before doing a batch update on each web server (30 on most sites, 300 on SO). It's still possible (mainly at slower times of the day) to see some mis-match like the above screen shot, due to those close voters having views in a buffer that hasn't got enough views to flush yet for example, or just the 30 second caching itself.
