According to an Idol poll by Weekly Reader, Paula is the most popular judge with girls between the ages of 4 and 19 while Simon is No. 1 with boys.
Despite the division, Idol seems to be bringing families together because 81 percent of preteens watch the show with their parents and so do 55 percent of teenagers.
Finally, 28 percent of teens think Chris Daugherty will become the next American Idol but only about 25 percent of those surveyed have ever bothered to vote for their favorite.
