Bernie Sanders Leads Time’s ‘Person of The Year’ Poll

Feel the Bern.

With only five days left to vote, Bernie Sanders leads Time’s Person of The Year reader’s poll. Sanders holds a strong lead over the runner-up, 18-year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai. Sanders has 10.5 percent of the vote, compared to just 5.3 percent for Yousafzai.

We imagine Sanders would gladly change his lead in Time’s poll to a lead in political polls over Hillary Clinton, but hey, it’s always nice to win something, right? Even if no one ever remembers the reader’s POY.

If you care enough or perhaps are a close friend of Bernie’s, voting on the reader’s POY ends Dec. 4 at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced Dec. 7.

The real POY winner—selected by Time editors—will be announced Dec. 9.
