Hmm,I think that Dumbledore is or was the most powerful wizard. But Snape and Harry come in a close second,IMO.

Dumbledore is the most powerful, for the obvious reasons, and also because like everyone has been saying, Voldemort is afraid of him and also because he is well respected in the wizardig world which doesnt come to just any average wizard

I think it's Harry, because he''s got all this potential and he's still there's power there, he just hasn't quite tapped into it yet. But it's there.

I'm always the desenter. I definitely think Harry is the most powerful wizard. Dumbledore couldn't defeat Voldemort. Dumbledore never survived a killing curse.

Harry is the Christ-like figure in the series. He was protected because of love. He has a wand with a phoenix feather from the same bird as Voldemort. The only difference between him and Voldemort is his choices. He's good and makes good decisions.

Dumbledore knew a lot from his experience and learning, but Harry can has the potential to become a lot greater than Dumbledore simply because his capacity is greater. Who has more power... Harry. The unforgivable curses have less effect on him. It's a natural ability, not a studied ability, essentially it's like magic itself.

Muggles can't learn magic, because they don't have the ability. In a magical sense, Dumbledore became as great as he could because of his abilities, but Harry has greater abilities. Harry just has a lot of book learning to do.

All of them are really powerful. But harry defeated and escaped Voldermont many times. Snape yes lied and killed dumbledore but remember Dumbleodre can read minds and his time was up. I believe harry is stronger.

They're all really powerful (Dumbledore, Voldemort, Snape, and Harry). Harry hasn't reached his peak yet, and as for the others, unless Snape is lying to Voldemort, Dumbldore is most powerful because even though Voldemort can perform at his level, Dumbledore surpasses him in character and integrity. I'm sure that Dumbledore would have no problem performing any of the Unforgivable Curses, but he chooses not to.

I think that Dumbledore is/was the most powerful wizard. But I voted for Harry since he is pretty powerful though he doesn't realize it.
I gotta go back to the muggle world,
they're gonna
try and tell me this wasn't, that none of this happened,
but you know what? It
was real. It did happen.
We spent time here. We made
friends here. That's a part of us.
Hogwarts is bigger than any of us, of any of it's founders,
and it's going to be around long after we're gone.
Maybe we'll see our
kids come here one day.
That's the thing about
No matter
how long you're away from it, there's always a way back.

Before book 6 I would've said Dumbledore, but he's dead, and Voldemort is alive, so it's gotta be him. Secondly, How could Snape get more votes than his master??? If Snape was more powerful than him, Voldemort would either be dead already, or serving Snape. Lastly... there's no way Harry's stronger than Voldemort, even if he does kill him in the end it will be with alot of help.
