Results of CNBC's 2011 Winners & Losers Poll
Tough luck kid. Our audience may not be the same as his, but the pop star better hope that the parents in our crowd are not pulling the purse strings of his tween and teen fans.

Fittingly, the the plain-vanilla candidate who has yet to lead the GOP presidential polls had a high "neither" vote.
Romney also fared better than Obama and Boehner, even if almost 50 percent of our voters identified him as a loser.
Romney will no doubt reappear in our poll next year, by which time his fate will have been decided by a much larger group of voters than ours.
A winner a year ago, the Fed chairman is a loser this year. Oddly enough, the voting percentages were essentially the same just reversed.
Still, this is the closest vote in our survey, and with all the bile directed at Bernanke, you would have thought he'd be an overwhelming loser.
It's also worth noting that Bernanke received more votes then President Obama.
The United Kingdom
Our weakest offering this year (we try to be international) received the least amount of votes. Though a loser, the U.K. tied Bernanke for the highest percentage of "winner" votes.
The economic environment there is bleaker now than it was before we started voting, but at least Britain fared better than Germany and France in our Winners & Losers 2011 survey.
