And I wasn't going to say it, but since you brought it up....I was thinking the same thing. Jason vote count is going up REALLY fast.
That said, there is an easy explanation: USFS, who has been sending reminders daily to vote, has 54k likes on its FB page and 55k followers on Twitter. Let's say that half of those followers/likes are from the same people. So if 50k people vote just once = 50,000 votes in one day.
Chances are many of those 50k people are at least voting multiple times if not the full 100x a day. So it doesn't seem that crazy for Jason to get 100k+ votes a day.
As for Nick Baumgartner, he has 3.2k followers on Twitter and 14k likes on Facebook.
This super cute post from Nick of his son: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...&stream_ref=10
garnered 140 reshares and 163 likes.
So Baumgartner clearly has his share of fans voting with fervor as well.
Also, IIRC, the top 2 get the ring by popular vote....and Jason is well into second place, so really it's all good. I guess it would be great to get voting bragging rights...but it's not absolutely necessary.
