Simon Cowell spoke with ‘Entertainment Weekly’ about how he sees Carrie Underwood as the favorite to win this season’s ‘American Idol’ – citing Republican influence on voting. “I think ‘American Idol’ has always been a red state competition,” Cowell explained. “I think mainly it’s a Southern competition. I think Carrie is reflective of what’s going on in this country. There are a lot of girls saying, ‘I’m bored of girls dressing like sluts.’…There’s a difference between what the record industry thinks and what Wal-Mart customers think. That’s one of the reasons why Carrie is doing so well.”
