Robert Pattinson Battles Barack Obama In 'Time' 100 Most Influential Poll

Robert Pattinson Battles Barack Obama In 'Time' 100 Most Influential Poll-photo

It is that time of the year when Time magazine prepares their prestigious list of the 100 Most Influential People.

As has happened in the past, Time has opened up the selection process to you, the public, to help the magazine separate the wheat from the chaff.

Currently, Time has collected a list of 200 top influencers that the public can rank on their website.

Time's list pits such world leaders as President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi against such celebrities as Robert Pattinson (currently in first place, obviously), Taylor Swift and Lady GaGa.

(Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber are all suspiciously left off the list.)

The list does contain some head-scratching choices, leading us to believe that the Time staff just did a quick browse of some blogs and decided that these people would make the magazine seem super relevant and "hip." Even though we love them we don't think we would consider Snooki or Glee's Lea Michele to be influential world leaders.

You can view the full list of names and rank your favorite influencers at Time's website.
