I know, everyone is currently so excited about the real event with all its unfortunate mishaps, but anyway. These are the results of the The 2017 Senbatsu Sousenkyo Exit Poll First, some numbers. We received 1587 votes from 70 Users voting for 78 members. 4 stagers voted more than 100 times, and 20 other users had a two digit number of votes. We could not accept one entry due to rule 2 (about vote pooling). Otherwise, Sasshi would have more than doubled her votes. But without further ado, here is your 2017 ranking! 1. Miyawaki Sakura (361 votes) 2. Sashihara Rino (305 votes) 3. Tani Marika (115 votes) 4. Taniguchi Megu (108 votes) 5. Tanaka Miku (100 votes) 6. Watanabe Mayu (93 votes) 7. Tashima Meru (60 votes) 8.

Yamashita Emily (1 vote) This exit poll had the least participation rate in years, and its obvious that many forum members who have bought votes in the stage48 shops haven't submitted their votes (which is of course no problem at all). Thus, its kinda pointless to deduce any trends. It is just a pretty small sample sizes. But as @Reveen already pointed out a lot of members which had a really strong (voting) fanbase in the stage48 community are gone. I still made some graphs Maybe the most interesting thing is the ranking of individual voters per members. I am only revealing the popular ones in order to prevent you from identifying individual votes: So, according to this metric, the most popular members are: Miyawaki Sakura 11 Watanabe Mayu 9 Okada Nana 7 Komiyama Haruka 7 Taniguchi Megu 5 Fukuoka Seina 5 Shiroma Miru 5 Tano Yuka 4 Kitagawa Ryoha 4 Sutou Ririka 4 Matsui Jurina 4 But, here is some visualization. 1. Just the ranking 2. The same, facetted by group 3. Votes by group 4. Ranked members by team and by group

YAY I am the only person who voted for STU which in terms making me the biggest fan for the group and Hina Chwan in S48 Sakamoto Eretan <<< LOOOOOOL think I know who snuck that in there sneaky sneaky

Basically Tashima Meru's votes are all mine minus one! This year I bought more votes than last year because I wanted Meru to rank really high, but she only went from 43 to 40... I hope next year I can vote even more, and if I win the lottery I'll just give her 50k votes in prelims and then 100k more the following days I just really hope she can reach undergirls next year and some day senbatsu... go Meru! I think stage48 provided a good number of votes! Also, I'm glad somebody voted for Fukuda Akari (STU48), I would've voted too but I'm focusing all of my resources on Meru because she is in need!

Due to not checking the forum much, while in Japan I totally missed this. Otherwise I'd add some votes for Shige. Just low Double-digits though.

She did put in a loot of effort and I wanted her to get some votes. Apparently I was the only one giving votes to Cuca and Shimada on this board.

That's my vote! I was thinking about supporting Naru and Ranrii (and Aapon, but I didn't end up voting for her) since before we knew STU would run this year, so I voted for those three. Next year Fukuchan will have an actual -although small- chance of ranking in and I'm sure I'll only vote for her.
