Well, There’s a difference between having power and using your power…
So, for this I’d say Voldemort…I mean think about it, Dumbledore may have been able to stop Volde at some points but when it comes having power, it’s Volde no doubt as sad as it is.

I also think that that the Weasley Twins have more potential than the joke shop. If they put their mind to it, then again, I doubt they want to do anything serious.
You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night..
You make me dance like a fool
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile.

In magical power Voldermort win hands down in this race, but in terms of character Harry and Dumbldore are streets,towns, citys a head of him.
Snape has a lot of magical power and character.

This is my list of the most magcial wizards:

1. Voldermort ( Voldy is only scared of DD because of what happen in book six with his stolen goodies! That event has given him a magical and mental block when it comes to DD but in powerful magical natural ability it has got to be him he could control his magic before he was 11!)

3. Harry
4. Snape

In good charcter it goes

1. Harry
2. Dumbldore
3. Snape ??
For the moment (being a spy is not easy work and he is being very brave so was the decision to change sides Snape is not a cowdard by any means!)

Voldy does not even make the grade but he does value manners and is polite and that is about it! He thinks highly of bravery and he must be commended about his decision to fight Harry in a proper duel in GoF it shows that even he has some value for honour! It can also be noted he has some limited value for loyalty! but he use them as tools!
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

It was Dumbledore before he died. Although I voted for Voldemort, I agree with Druscilla_Black that Snape must be very skilled to keep lying to both sides. He can only become powerful now, depends what side he's on.

I think that Harry might not be really yet, but all of the hardships he has gone through have to be for something. That would make life seem so horrible if there wasn't a reason for the things we go through... I'm not saying there has to be a reason, just that I hope there is.

I think they are all very powerful wizards but I voted for Dumbledore. He just is so smart and he knows how to do everything and it's just so amazing that he can do all of these things and at such a young age too because in one book someone was talking about Dumbledore when he was in school and said that the person "never seen anything like that." I definatlty think he is the most powerful wizard.

Voldemort definitly as he has been though so many magical transformations he is aquired non-human powers. He is according to Dumbledore Hogwarts most brilliant student. He has 7 horcruxes the first wizard to have more than one horcrux. He discovered the chamber of secrets in his fifth or sixth year after much studying. He managed to climb down the cliff face before he even started at Hogwarts with that litle boy and girl from the orphanage. He has the power of killing with out guilt something I imagine Dumbledore or Harry would never have, something that Riddle was able to do in his 6th year. At that age he was also able to modify memories. He has manipulative power he caused all the those familys to ripped apart in the 1st war, he caused the ministry to tell all the lies about Dumbledore and Harry when he didnt come out in to the open. In his thirties he had already gotten a group of death eaters. The first war went on for 11 years he was picking members of the order off one by one. The order was struggling it was twenty to one. Voldemorts power over Harry's mind is a clear sign of strong magical power. Voldemorts manipulative power continues :he was able to find information out about the teachers that he shouldnt know ,at sixteen he got the giants, he got the dementors, he has inferius he has Fenrir out there getting werewolves on his side.If I am right he was also right in planting snape at Hogwarts as I believe he is faithful to Voldemort.

Mind you Snape and Dumbledore are close contenders. Dumbledore though he knows Tom's weaknesses has never acted upon them. He has discovered uses of dragons blood and done alchemy and during his OWLS did things with a wand that Madam Marchbanks had never seen before. He has fantastic mind but can be fooled he is not infallible just like voldmeort and everyone else.
Snape wrote spells in his hogwarts year, potentially lethal ones. He has a passion and great knowledge for the dark arts. He has a power over Dumbledore that ensures that noone will convince him that Snape cant be trusted. However I blieve that Snape is on the dark lords side and if he were more powerful than Voldemort then he would be able to rise up against him as Snape is surely ambitious.
I dont believe Harry is that powerful he just very adept at DADA and has never been tempted by the dark side.
i voted for Voldemort even if Dumbledore was stiil alive
the list would be as follows for me if dumbledore was still alive after hsi death he would obvioulsy be last.

Dumbledore. I chose this way because I was looking at both wizards that are alive right now and dead, so Dumbledore is still the most powerful wizard. Besides, who knows what he can do as a portrait. If you ask me, he just might prove how powerful he is.

That's a really hard question, but after careful consideration... i still don't know who's more powerful.

Voldemort on the one hand is incredibly dangerous, but Harry has dueled with him and survived... even if he was being helped by the 'inhabitants' of Voldy's wand.

I suppose I'd have to say Dumbledore.

Def Dumbledore. The poll results are interesting though. I'd have put Voldemort second. But Harry is second.

Whereas the others are powerful as well, I agree with other people.
