Mixed results for the NDP Leadership Jagmeet Singh with slim lead among those with an opinion, Charlie Angus among party members

June 19, 2017

In the fifth wave of the Campaign Research Poll - a nationwide online omnibus opinion survey conducted among 2767 Canadian voters - as many as two thirds of the electorate don’t have an opinion on the NDP leadership race or its five declared contestants (68%). Among the small group who had an opinion, Jagmeet Singh, the charismatic MPP from Ontario, was the favorite (7%). He is followed by Charlie Angus (5%) and three other contestants, Peter Julian (4%), Niki Ashton (3%) and Guy Caron (3%).

Among the survey respondents who would vote NDP if a federal election were held tomorrow, Charlie Angus had a slim lead (8%) over Singh (6%), and other candidates. (Julian - 6%, Ashton - 5%, Caron - 4%).


Among those who claim to hold federal NDP memberships (3%), Angus’ lead was more prominent (19%). Singh placed second (16%), and was closely followed by the other candidates (Julian -10%, Ashton - 9%, Guy Caron - 10%).


“It appears Jagmeet Singh has made an impression on the general public, but Charlie Angus is still the favoured candidate among those who might be more likely to elect a new leader” said Eli Yufest,

This online poll was conducted between June 9 and 12, 2017, among a panel of 2767 Canadian voters. A probability sample of this size would have a margin of error of plus or minus 2%, 19 out of 20 times.
