Prime Minister Narendra Modi leads TIME's person of the year 2016

Modi is far ahead of Obama, Trump and Assange with a huge gap of 11 per cent.



On the way to repeat history, Prime Minister Narendra Modi continues to lead in Time magazine's 'Person of the Year' 2016 poll.

Reportedly, he is way ahead of world leaders like Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump. He is leading the readers poll with a whopping 18 per cent of the total 'yes' votes as on Friday.

The only persons to come closest to Modi in the Time's Person of the Year 2016 poll are US President Barack Obama, Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange and US President-elect Donald Trump- but all these three have just earned seven per cent of the all 'yes' votes.


Thus, Modi is far ahead of Obama, Trump and Assange with a huge gap of 11 per cent.

It is for the fourth time in a row that Modi is one of the contenders of the Time's 'Person of the Year' honour, which the US magazine bestows every year to the one "who has most influenced the news and our world in the past year, for good or ill."

In 2014, Modi had won the Time's Person of the Year poll  and in 2015 it was German Chancellor Angela Merkel who bagged the honour.

The subject of interest is that the current poll results suggest that the voter preferences changes not only across the world, but also differ between US states.





The voting for this readers poll will end on December 4 i.e. Sunday at 11.59 pm ET, and the results will be declared on December 7 (Wednesday).
