David Archuleta – Is He The King of Polls?

17 March 2010



For several reasons this article tickles my funny bone as neither writer, Christina Kinon nor Donna Reynolds, listed David Archuleta as one of their favorite Idol contestants. But behold, look who is winning! As of this date with 42% of the vote, he is leading. It always amazes me there are still a few people who just don’t get it yet!!!! Oh well, they will eventually come around! Haha! David Archuleta, the King of Polls!

Who is your all time favorite ‘American Idol’ contestant?

New York Daily News reality TV expert Cristina Kinon has put together a photo gallery of her all-time favorite American Idol contestants. She justifies her choices, which include some obvious and others not so obvious.

Kinon’s list includes David Cook, Kelly Clarkson, Ace Young, Amanda Overmyer, Chris Daughtry, Fantasia, Blake Lewis, Jennifer Hudson, Elliott Yamin, Carrie Underwood, Bo Bice, Matt Rogers, and Adam Lambert.

While I agree with most of her choices, I would take exception to Matt Rogers, the Season 3 jock…and Blake Lewis, the beat-boxing misfit whose inclusion in the Season 6 finals is still baffling. I’m not totally buying Ace Young in this group either, but he’s a good guy and has had an impressive post-Idol career on Broadway.

My all-time favorite Idol is Bo Bice who blazed the trail for future Idol rockers. I would also put Elliott Yamin and Adam Lambert on my list, along with Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood, George Huff, Fantasia, Clay Aiken, Taylor Hicks, Kellie Pickler, and Allison Iraheta.

    I laugh at some of the whiny comments left at that article complaining about Archuleta fans “spamming” the poll. Well, no doubt some are, but so are fans of Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood judging by the enormous jump in votes for those two idols since I viewed the poll last evening.

    Are polls like this meaningless? In that they neither advance nor spoil careers, yes. However, they do tend to be a good indicator of an artist’s core fan base. In that respect, David’s tends to be one of the most, if not THE most, dedicated — and rightly so I might add given the unique and special artist we support!

    Here’s a link to the poll:
