I think you have to remember, with regard to Reina vs Whizzard, two things:
First, that these votes were tallied at the height of the popularity of things like Untrashable, Red Coats, and NBN, often featuring Ash and/or Drip econ cards in addition to the normal Jackson/SanSan. Whizzard was at a very good spot in the meta at the end of the cycle, just because of the corp decks people were playing. Frankly, I think that's still largely the case. Not a lot of Weyland, a lot of Assets and Upgrades. Second, that Reina has generally been significantly more popular since her release than Whizzard, skewing the tournament results in her favor.
I think at this point, Whizzard vs Reina is a toss-up. I would have said Whizzard for sure a week ago, but Wooley's stellar performance with his decidedly Reina deck, I think it's a close call. However, I would personally agree strongly with you, that both of them are better than Kit, (A runner I could never for the life of me make work against a corp who stacked their ICE shrewdly).
