I recently noticed something odd. I had asked a question on superuser. I got one vote on an answer I later provided, but no votes on the question. Today, I log in and realize I somehow got the popular question badge on this question!(so, over 1,000 views!)

I'm requesting a query to see how many questions like this exist else where. If so, is this a problem we should worry about?

I don't think this is an issue. Just because 1,000 people view a question, it doesn't mean it should have a lot of up votes. It could be a question that looks good in the title, but once the read the rest they are no longer intrested. In fact some "bad" questions (lots of negative votes) have high views.
