- Bernie Sanders won the online readers poll for TIME's Person of the Year Monday
- TIME editors will announce their selection for Person of the Year Wednesday
TIME announced Monday that Sanders won a little more than 10% of the readers' votes in an online poll, almost double the 5.2% that Yousafzali won and well ahead of Pope Francis' 3.7%.
President Barack Obama was the choice of 3.5% of readers and other White House candidates came in with much less support -- 1.8% picked Donald Trump and 1.4% picked Hillary Clinton.
TIME's editors will select the Person of the Year -- the person they determine had the greatest impact on the news this year -- and announce the selection Wednesday on NBC's "Today."
