'Star Wars': America Divided on Which Character Is the Best

A breakdown of popularity by state reveals only Maine loves Rey most and Darth Vader rules in Washington, D.C.

We really are truly a nation divided.

In honor of Star Wars Day, the team at Ranker Insights has prepared some data for Heat Vision about the most popular Star Wars characters, and has even broken them down on a state-by-state basis.

First, here’s the most popular:

1. Obi-Wan Kenobi

2. Darth Vader

3. Han Solo

4. Yoda

5. R2-D2

6. Chewbacca

7. Luke Skywalker

8. Leia Organa

9. Boba Fett

10. Darth Maul

No. 1 is a little surprising. Who knew Darth Vader or Han Solo would play second fiddle to Obi-Wan? And Luke and Leia don’t even crack the top 5?.  

Now, check out which character is is most popular, by state.

A few notable findings: Maine is the only state where Rey rules and Montana is the only Darth Maul stronghold. The West Coast is fixated on Han Solo, while Washington, D.C. is among the places where Darth Vader is lord (perhaps appropriate, as Steve Bannon did once reveal his admiration for the Sith lord.)
