This should have been limited to pvp or pve. It's pretty unanimous that mages are OP in pvp this expansion, but it would be a more interesting discussion in terms of pve.
I would say Mages. Why?
Paladins got most attention prior to release, but they are far from being very powerful. If they were favoured, that would be an easy thing to do.
Warriors got some great things going for them. Arms is an excellent spec right now and it is very powerful.
DKs are also strong.
Everything else seems to be almost the same in terms of attention and favouritism. Except for Druids, of course. They are getting hit by the nerf bat quite a bit every single patch.
Mages, however, got some nice new mechanics, and they got to be a very easy spec to play in PvE, being competitive without actually having to worry too much about what they do. Fire improved from Wrath, and Arcane still is the easiest spec of all DPS to play. PvP-wise, Frost cannot be touched, and Blizzard got that 'they are not so hot against pros, but they are very good against every other tier of player', like all players were just bad, and the very few that were not, could actually face a 'balanced spec'. That is why I say Mages.
That is probably the most damning poll I have ever seen. Blizzard would deny it though.
I think we all know which class Blizzard has favored ;P

Mages, why? Not because they're OP or anything, but they just received a lot of attention. Buff this, then nerf that, then change this, etc etc. They've come to the point they're fairly balanced: Doing a reasonable amount of dps(altough I stopped using my mage as pve main because I hated fire, and arcane is boring as hell), as well as being competitive in PvP. But, they arent the strongest in both. Yeye I hear the whole forum screaming: Mages are imba they blow u up in liek 2seconds lulz. But once you've really played a pvp mage, you know that just isn't true.
I don't feel restoration druids have been favored the most in this expansion. Any of you gals/guys have some comparisons to refute this claim?
I would say frost dk & mage is about the same in pvp ( at least for me as Disc priest) But I also play a mage and I do not think they are overpowered.. They are just annoying and there is nothing blizzard can do about that unless they want to redesign frost spec completely.

None, people are just stupid if they believe Blizzard favors a class.
Arcane should be nerfed around 10-15%.
