Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi holds a solid lead in TIME’s Person of the Entire Year Reader’s Survey with 18% of all votes as of Tuesday evening.
While the move is intended to curtail untaxed income, it has upended cash-based companies and threatened to impede the state’s economic growth.
TIME’s poll host, Apester, says that individuals who support, unlike other voters Modi are particularly likely to choose “no” on other candidates rather than voting affirmatively for multiple picks.
Modi’s closest competitors are Julian Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Assange with 7% of the “yes ” votes each.
Annually, the one who has, for better or for worse, impacted the news the most in the previous year is selected by TIME. This poll is a way for readers to express their particular opinions on who has made the greatest impact on the world in 2016, although the magazine’s editors always make the last Person of the Year choice. For 2016, TIME—in partnership with Opentopic and IBM ’s Watson—is also able to monitor and compare sway in a whole new way. Opentopic worked with Watson to monitor as a way to make an image of exactly what the world is saying regarding the people and ideas that matter how nominees made their mark on the world wide web. TIME’s editors used this information while finalising the list for the Person of the Year reader survey.
