The crux of the matter is that, PM Modi was placed well ahead from his closest competitor including Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Julian Assange, who all received 7% of the “yes” vote. PM Modi was also far ahead of other prominent figures of this year, like Mark Zuckerberg(2%) and Hillary Clinton(4%).
This is the 2nd time that Modi has won this poll; the first time being in the year 2014(16 percent of yes votes).
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.
The US Publication always bestows this title to the influential person of the year. And the PM has been the contender for 4 years in a row.
The rest of the list will be revealed on Dec 7.
