Princess Leia vs Darth Vader
- Sex Appeal Wins Again - A poll shows the mindless public favoring the sex appeal of Princess Leia over the "Get The Job Done At Any Price" Darth Vader.
- Still there is room for growth for those of us in the Vader Movement. The can do spirit of our leader will narrow the poll gap.
- Vader shows great potential. Despite suffering from decades of bad press from the lamestream galactic media, Darth Vader's popularity has shown surprising resilience. He's given a thumbs up by almost half (49 percent) of those polled. Obviously there are a lot of folks out there who don't buy into the lies propagated by the media arms of the filthy rebel alliance. I'm talking about the good, hardworking folks filled with anxiety about trade disputes and other economic matters who just want to Make The Galaxy Great Again. Indeed, one could argue that Darth has a shockingly high 104 percent approval rating, since this poll, oddly, asks about both Anakin Skywalker AND Darth Vader (spoiler: it's the same guy). But that seems off to me and I wouldn't want to propagate #FakeNews. Anyway, these are really good numbers for Vader, but they leave room for improvement. I would suggest he pursues a two-fold strategy: targeted media buys in systems that are already open to the message of the Empire (such as Coruscant) and demonstrations of galactic power on those systems that are still somewhat … shaky. Nothing like forcing the people to love you to get your numbers up! Fortunately for Vader, Alderaan is no longer around to drag his numbers down; take out a few more recalcitrant systems and we can get him over 50 percent in no time.
(Morning Consult) - The Star Wars gang returns to theaters next week with the release of the franchise’s latest film, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Forty-nine percent of U.S. adults said they plan to see the movie, with 32 percent saying they intend to see it in theaters, according to a new Morning Consult poll.
The Dec. 1-4 survey of 2,200 adults, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points, also revealed the Force is stronger with some characters than it is with others — at least when it comes to their favorability.
Princess Leia earned the highest favorability, at 73 percent, followed by Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and Yoda, who all tied for second at 72 percent. R2-D2’s 71-percent favorability is impressive — most impressive — compared to fellow droid C-3PO’s 65 percent and 39 percent for BB-8.
Poll respondents also ranked the original Star Wars trilogy, which starts with “Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope,” highest in favorability compared with the prequels and more recent films. The newer films — “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” — are more popular than the prequels.
Key to the Star Wars dynasty are adults aged 30-44. Respondents in that category were more likely than any other age group to say they’ve seen each “Star Wars” movie, and they were more likely to say they have purchased a Star Wars-branded product.
The Walt Disney Co.’s first film for the franchise, “The Force Awakens,” has brought in more than $936 million since its 2015 release, making it the highest-grossing film in the United States without inflation adjustment. It’s also one of three Star Wars films in the overall top 10 highest domestically grossing films.
