Googling "site:code.google.com django" turns up an order of magnitude more results than searches for pylons or zope. That's one objective indicator of Django's popularity relative to Google's public-facing developer projects. Obviously, Google is just one company -- but they shape a lot of perceptions out there.

The best way that I have been able to determine this is to do a search for hosting sites that actually host Django vs. other Python Web Frameworks. I did some research about 6 months ago and found only a handful of sites that are actually set up to host Django. I was quickly able to narrow it down to one, which responded promptly to my email inquiries (I will let you determine your own conclusions - am not pushing any hosting companies here). It is a bit frustrating. After all, you have python as a great language and then django for its web framework, but it just doesn't look like it has caught onto the mainstream yet. Unless something has happened recently, I would guess you would find even less support for TurboGears, Pylons, Webware, CherryPy - not sure, but they just dont even seem as popular from a book/research perspective.
