You're not going to get the numbers you are looking for on this board...lets look at the biggest fan bases
1. Braves.... Cards fault they lost last and this year 2. Cubs.... 3. Astros... Yrs of being the Cardinals bitch, I know 2005 4. Rangers...last yrs WS
Then not as big you have the Reds (rival) and the Yankees (only care about themselves)
And I know there are fans of other teams but these are the ones that stick out the most, and TBH I'm surprised the Cards got as many for votes as they did. I remember it being only 6-7 fans for yrs, funny what a WS can do for your fan base.

I've been a lifelong Cards fan. Grew up in Hannibal, MO a little over an hour north of St. Louis and attended games every summer.
It doesn't take a WS to bring me out of the woodwork.
Why are you surprised by all of the Cards fans on here? Pretty much all of Arkansas pulls for the Cards. A large chunk of Tennessee and a portion of Kentucky pull for the Cards. A large portion of Mississippi and Louisiana pull for the Cards.
I think you greatly misjudge baseball allegiances in the south.
