Narendra Modi Wins Reader’s Poll for TIME Person of the Year
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has won the online reader’s poll for TIME Person of the Year, beating out other world leaders, artists and politicians as the mostinfluential figure in 2016 among people who voted. The magazine’s editors decide the final Person of the Year, but poll results provide a look at how the world sees these figures.
Modi won with 18% of the vote when the poll closed Sunday at midnight. He placed well ahead of his closest contenders, including Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Julian Assange, who all received 7% of the “yes” vote. Modi also placed far ahead of other prominent figures of this year, like Mark Zuckerberg (2%) and Hillary Clinton (4%).
In recent months, Modi saw high approval ratings from Indians, according to a September Pew poll, and ratified the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Modi has come under scrutiny recently for getting rid of 500- and 1,000-rupee notes, impacting cash-based businesses and threatening India’s economy.
Current poll results, analyzed by poll host Apester, found that preferences differ across the world and the United States. Modi performed particularly well among Indian voters as well as those in California and New Jersey.
Every year, TIME selects the most influential person of the year, noting, for better or for worse, the person or group of people who have had the largest global impact over the past 12 months. In partnership with Opentopic and IBM’s Watson this year, TIME editors were also able to see how candidates were influential on the Internet.
TIME’S Person of the Year will be revealed on Dec. 7.

Chanakya says, money and respect shouldn't be refused; regardless from where it comes.

If people can not handle respect or do not know how to use it then they are worthless people.

I will use to rub on leftist buggers who have thrived of such references to shine and earn influence. What is wrong if Modi is been selected.

Rub hard before it melts into its natural symbolic uselessness.

So, Indian Prime Minister is now world's most influential politician.

Last year, Forbes magazine ranked him as world's 9th most powerful person, 6 spots up from previous year. Would love to see this year.
Though, @sukhish won't be happy over this.:biggrin2:
His mother had said that he will become the king of world. Her son is very innocent and he has no sin in his heart (Uske dil main pap nahi hain). She can't be wrong.

We don't need Time to tell us that but their acknowledgement is nevertheless welcomed.
