Bradley Manning: Person of the Year

Bradley Manning wins Guardian's 2012 Person of the Year vote ­The 24-year-old Nobel nominee and former US Army intelligence analyst has been nominated by The Guardian's editors and readers to compete with this year's other headline-makers, such as Russian punk band Pussy Riot and Italian particle physicist Fabiola Gianotti. With an overwhelming majority of 70 per cent, Manning, incarcerated over claims that he supplied classified documents to WikiLeaks, has secured the vote. Malala Yousafzai, a girl shot by the Taliban, came in second with 22 per cent. Here was the Guardian's question and its results. I voted Manning too. Who was your person of the year for 2012? 22% Malala Yousafzai 70% Bradley Manning 3% Pussy Riot 3% Danny Boyle 1% Fabiola Gianotti 2% Nate Silver
