The singer had been rumoured to be mainly popular in his local city Liverpool, but has been getting votes from all corners of the country, according to The Sun.
Traditionally, acts gain a huge backing if they are from big cities or Ireland, Wales or Scotland.
Maloney has never fallen into the bottom three during this year's X Factor, while he was also voted by the public as the 'wildcard' act.
An ITV source claimed: "It's like nothing we've ever seen.
"When Irish singer Mary Byrne was on the show, the Irish vote was keeping her in. But with Christopher everyone is voting for him.
"It's not the end of the world if he wins because it will be what the public wants and we're sure James will get a deal and keep the show's credibility intact."
Christopher Maloney will battle it out with Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur for this year's X Factor crown on ITV1 at the weekend.
