4 gang Light switch wiring

I am wiring a new bathroom with a 4 gang light switch. All fixtures will be on the same circuit. Therefore I will have only one power line into the box. Can I jumper the hot lead from one switch to the next?

Or you can take a "pigtail" from each switch and connect all five (including power wire) with a large wire nut.

Assuming that your switches will only accept one wire per terminal, it might be easier to feed them with pigtails, as Furd suggested, than to daisy-chain them with one wire insulated between every termination.
