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

By Marco Vigliotti      

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.

Jagmeet Singh, far left, is the preferred choice of Canadians to win the NDP leadership at 11 per cent, narrowly leading Charlie Angus, centre right, and Guy Caron, far right, who are tied for second at six per cent apiece, according to a new poll.
