Time Magazine will reveal the Person of the Year 2015 this morning.

Time magazine's editors will unveil the 2015 Person of the Year this morning on the Today Show. Time Magazine released a shortlist of the candidates for the 2015 Person of the Year cover earlier this week.

Update: Angela Merkel is Person of the Year 2015.

The list is comprised of eight names including ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, Black Lives Matter activists, Caitlyn Jenner, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, German chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Donald Trump.

The 2015 Time Magazine Person of the year can be a villain, or even Donald Trump. NBC is hosting a poll and initially Donald Trump was in the lead with over 45%. Now ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has over 60% in the poll and Trump is distant second with 18%.

It would not be that surprising if Time's editors would follow the public vote. ISIS, or ISIL as Obama likes to call them, has dominated the news over the past year. 

Ebola Fighters have been TIME's choice for Person of the Year 2014. In 2013 it was Pope Francis.
