Most Fans In Ohio

After the NTY map came out I haven't been able to stop wondering whether the Indians or the Reds have the most fans in Ohio. So I decided to crunch the numbers using the percentages of fans per county given in the map, in relation to the population per county. Obviously I know this isn't going to be 100% accurate because the NYT map is based on Facebook fans, but I'm giving it a shot with these numbers anyway.

If you look by county, there are only three teams listed. Inevitably this means that percentages will not always be provided for both the Reds and Indians, as they do not always crack the top three in certain counties. This provides another flaw in the accuracy of the total count, but who cares.

Here are the results:

Surprisingly, the Indians come ahead by almost 1 Million fans!! Going through each county, the Tribe benefitted from population density in Northeast Ohio. But they also were also in the top 3 in many more counties across the state than the Reds. The Indians appeared in the top 3 listings in multiple southern counties, where the the second and third most popular teams in the northern Ohio tended to be the Yankees and Red Sox, with the Tigers dominating the northwest.
