Fangirls, to answer your question. They're obnoxious, annoying, and predictable, and for some reason they're drawn to Kyle. Maybe it's because he's as predictable, whiny, and stubborn as they are.
Many people like Cartman, but you have a sizeable minority who hate him because of his overexposure in the show, and his blatant bigotry and racism. I agree that he's overused.
I find Kenny highly likeable because of his wit and his twisted sense of humor. The only reason anyone would have anything against him is the fact that he's heavily muffled, physically and audibly, and he's rarely seen or used anymore. Nothing with his personality - just how he's treated by the show's staff.
Some people might say Stan is boring and bread-and-butter, but he's less predictable and annoying than the rest. He's the person most people can relate to, and he has a huge fan base.
Butters is just overused. He's a great character if he's used sparingly. Everything people like about him, like his stuttering, gullibility, and soft-natured personality have been exploited and run into the ground. He's one of the only cartoon characters I can think of who is actually overdeveloped.
Butters basically is a major factor in a disproportionate number of well loved episodes. Awesome-O, Imaginationland, Casa Bonita, Last of the Meheecans, Butters' Bottom Bitch etc. The argument can be made that he's overused at this point, but he has a lot of classic moments.
And I personally like Kyle as a foil to the general insanity of South Park. With so many insane events and over the top characters, it's good to have someone who acts as a logical, intelligent voice. You need that with Cartman's antics, but it relegates him to secondary character status.
That said, I don't get the fangirls since they often reinterpret the character to the point of bastardization. How the hell does anybody get weak and girly? I don't think they watch the same show.
I was actually surprised Craig wasn't an option in any of the brackets. He as enough of a cult status (basically due to Pandemic) to have resulted in an upset.
Wish I had a chance to vote for Sharon. And I knew Stan wouldn't win. Even if he has loyal fans I just don't think there are enough. :/
I ship: Stan/Cartman <3
Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.
