Super Street Fighter 4 Character Use Data from SRK and Eventhubs

SRK and Eventhubs both put up interesting information on character use. 

SRK conducted a poll asking players "Who is your main character in Super Street Fighter 4?".  More then 5,500 players responded, and the results are predictable in some cases but shocking in others.

Eventhubs also had a data project in which they gathered information on how many times specific characters were encountered in online matches.  More than 4,000 matches were added so far. Again, some surprises some not.

So, are there parallels between the two sources of data?
