4chan is probably spamming Squall votes like they did with Vivi. The character battle is meaningless now anyway. It's not even a popularity contest anymore, it's just "which site's users can make the most troll votes?"
Besides, I don't know much about Final Fantasy but wasn't 8 one of the less popular ones? (Squall is from 8, right?)
Everyone hates the game, but likes the character for some reason.
Quite the opposite for me. I love FF8, but dislike the emo, won't ever pull the trigger (i made a funny) Squall.
