Beating Trump, Clinton, the Pope, etc... Sanders Leads All for TIME 'Person of the Year'

Pretty damned amazing, especially since Time/Warner is one of Hillary's biggest supporters & donors

Beating Trump, Clinton, the Pope, and Adele... Sanders Leads All for TIME 'Person of the Year'
Though the announcement of TIME magazine's 'Person of the Year' designation isn't until next month, it was reported on Monday that the leading contender—at least among the magazine's readership—is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the Democratic presidential candidate calling for a 'political revolution' with his grassroots-driven campaign against establishment candidate Hillary Clinton.

1. The readers' poll doesn't decide who the magazine picks at POTY

They've been doing a readers' poll for nearly 20 years. I don't think the winner of the readers' poll has ever been named POTY by Time. For example, in 2010, Julian Assange won the readers' poll, but Mark Zuckerberg was named POTY. In 2012, Kim Jun Il won (allegedly after a Korean group hacked the poll) while Time picked Barack Obama. And in 2006, Hugo Chavez won the readers' poll, while the magazine chose "You" as the POTY.

Most embarrassingly for Time, in 1998, wrestler Mick Foley won the readers' poll; the magazine's choices were Bill Clinton and Kenneth Starr.

5. A courageous and brilliant young woman. An inspiration to girls everywhere.

To us all really, if she can stand up to the terrorists why are we too scared to let refugees into our country?

3. Bernie is CRUSHING Hillary

Hillary trails Bashar Assad!!!
She trails American Pharoah!!!
Hillary is trailing a race horse?!?


It doesn't look very promising for Hillary!

Bernie's closest competition is
nearly 8 points behind...
the BIGGEST margin between
any of the nominees!!!

The remaining nominees are all within
one point of one another!

Go Bernie!
We Will Win!!!

6. He's the most popular Senator in the US also. 83% approval rating!

At some point those who are pooh-poohing all the polls other than the MSM/Traditional polls are going to have to accept that the more people get to him, the more they love him!
