Singh has small lead in NDP leadership race, but Angus tops among party members: poll

Charlie Angus, pictured second from the right, is the top choice of NDP members in the party's ongoing leadership race, leading Jagmeet Singh, far left, by a 25-18 per cent margin, according to a new poll. Niki Ashton, pictured second from the left, trails in third at 16 per cent, while Guy Caron, far right, sits last at 13 per cent. The Hill Times photographs by Andrew Meade and file photo

However, most Canadians aren't keeping track of the leadership vote, with only a quarter following the race, and only four per cent doing so 'very closely,' according to the Campaign Research survey.
