Scuttlebutt Poll:
34th America's Cup - Which team do you like the most?
November 17-20, 2011

The Q Score is a measurement of the familiarity and appeal of personalities, characters, licensed properties, programs, and brands. The higher the Q Score, the more highly regarded the item or person is among the group that is familiar with them.

Since the America's Cup match only comes around every three to five years, it likely suffers in the category of Q Score measurement. But now we have the America's Cup World Series, which was launched in 2011 to provide the platform for sporting fans to get connected with the event, and for teams to become fan favorites.

As Facebook has demonstrated the power of 'like', Scuttlebutt wanted to know which teams were liked (or sort of liked). This was purely a popularity poll taken during the San Diego event (Nov. 16-20), and had no bearing on who would win. Consider it the Q Score measurement for teams... here are the results:

21.64% - Emirates Team New Zealand (NZL), Dean Barker (NZL)
19.01% - Artemis Racing (SWE), Terry Hutchinson (USA)
17.54% - Oracle Racing (USA), Jimmy Spithill/Darren Bundock (AUS)
15.20% - Energy Team (FRA), Yann Guichard (FRA)
14.04% - China Team (CHN), Charlie Ogletree (USA)
06.14% - Team Korea (ROK), Chris Draper (GBR)
02.92% - Green Comm Racing (ESP), Vasilij Zbogar (SLO)
01.75% - Aleph (FRA), Pierre Pennec (FRA)
01.75% - Luna Rossa Challenge 2013 (ITA), Max Sirena (ITA)
