This is so difficult question , but I voted for Yuna Kim.
She deserves the win
Everlast, Forever, Last One & Only One...Queen Yuna KIM !!!
Cant believe Kwan is going to win this.... Yuna would beat Kwan anyday
As for Kwan and Kim's popularity - I've a feeling that Kim is a big deal in Korea only. I always use my non-FS-watching, non-American extended family as a yardstick - they still think that FS is the Kerrigan-Harding scandal and Kwan (and this is without any prompting from me). I mention Kim Yu-Na to them and they're like, "Which Kim is that? Don't all Koreans seem to be Kims?".
Chill down please. Not everything is about konspiracy surrounding Yuna and "Korean Yunabots." Same goes for the other way around. Certain comments in this poll are getting more and more ridiculous.
LONG LIVE THE NORTH AMERICAN KWANATIC KWANBOTS!
I do not classify myself as a kwanbot...I am a kwan-uber, thank you kindly. As an uber I defend the Kween to the bitter end, however I am not so blinded that I am unable to see where the Kween made mistakes or was lacking...though the Kween made very few mistakes and lacked very little during her time.

Doesn't sound like you should trust your instinct too much before doing some research. I can vouch she is big in China too, she had her own 1 hour documentary on cctv national network just after the olympics, interviews, tv commentaries on her activities too. During her recent appearance at an ice show in China, she practically overshadowed SZ's farewell appearance due to her high profile rare appearance which the organiser claimed they have worked on for 2 years to get her. This was reported in a number of articles, not my words. This is inspite of having some amazing skaters in the cast like Plushy and Kurt. She also has fan groups in China and Russia as far as i know. How many ladies skaters past and present can truly say that?
I have other non Fs friends from many countries too in asia and europe appear to know her. It helps when with she held probably the highest profiled ogm in recent years and her social philanthropy work for the likes of UNICEF and Olympic bid are frequently mentioned on international press.

Then, how about asking them '' Who is the US national champion in ladies 2012?''
It's not the time for You to worry about Yuna's popularity in US.
Tell them who the US champion is , and buy tickets and take them with you to
Skate America this year or US Nationals, Worlds next year.
Yunabots are better than you, I think. They buy tickets.
