The Winner

I just refreshed the poll for the last time at exactly 12:00 noon on Thursday, January 29, CST, and the results are as follows (total of 284 votes):

arielAriel: 117 (41%)



Belle: 19 (7%)

Esmerelda: 8 (3%)

Jane: 8 (3%)

Jasmine: 75 (26%)

Mulan: 5 (2%)

Pocahontas: 47 (17%)

Nala: 5 (2%)

It’s a victory for mermaids and mermen everywhere. And a huge loss for Mulan, who ended up tied with an animal.

I’m not going to close the poll, because our children and our children’s children deserve to vote as well. Disney’s not making animated films anymore, so it’s not like we’ll have anyone to add to this list. Thanks for your votes. Any ideas for another poll that would garner this much interest and debate?

  1. My friends, we have come to the end of a long journey. The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly.

    A little while ago, I had the honor of calling Ariel, the Little Mermaid, to congratulate her.
    To congratulate her on being elected the hottest animated female Disney character.

    In a contest as long and difficult as this campaign has been, her success alone commands my respect for her ability and perseverance. But that she managed to do so by inspiring the hopes of so many millions of Americans who had once so wrongly believed that clamshells couldn’t provide adequate support… This is something I deeply admire and commend her for achieving.

    We fought — we fought as hard as we could. And though we fell short, the failure is mine, not yours.

    I don’t know — I don’t know what more we could have done to try to win this election. I’ll leave that to others to determine. But tonight — tonight, more than any night, I hold in my heart nothing but love for this country and for all Disney characters.

    Thank you, and God bless you, and God bless America.

    – Princess Jasmine
