TIME 2020 PERSON OF THE YEAR POLL

Essential Workers Win TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year Reader Poll

Essential workers—the nurses, doctors, delivery people, grocery-store employees and many others who continue to risk their lives on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic—have won TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year reader poll.

These heroes won with 6.5% of the more than 8 million votes cast in this year’s poll, which asked readers to select the person or group of people who had the greatest influence on 2020. Essential workers beat out some 80 other candidates, including famed figures like President Donald Trump, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Pope Francis, for readers’ top pick.

This year’s reader poll results also highlighted several other figures and groups who stood out during an unprecedented and grueling year.

Final decision to be made by Time on December 10, will they go with the poll?

DAWG SAYS: I DO NOT BELIEVE MUCH IN POLLS AS THEY ARE NOT REALISTIC AND FACT BASED. BUT THIS ONE I CAN AGREE WITH.

LETS SEE WHAT TIME DOES.
