NEW YORK (TIP): Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has won Time magazine’s readers’ poll of the world’s 100 most influential people, garnering more than three times as many votes as his rival Hillary Clinton.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, tennis icon Sania Mirza and actor Priyanka Chopra are also among the probable contenders named by the magazine for its annual list. In the readers’ poll, Modi got 0.7% of the ‘yes’ votes while Mirza got 0.5% and Chopra 0.8%.

Sanders had been leading the readers’ poll from the start and finished with 3.3 per cent of the total ‘yes’ votes when the poll closed midnight yesterday.

The Vermont senator not only beat Clinton, 68, who has finished with one per cent of the ‘yes’ votes but also a host of world leaders and cultural figures.

Sanders edged out the South Korean boy band Big Bang which got 2.9% votes. Myanmar pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi came in third with 2.2% votes followed by US President Barack Obama with 2%.
