War of numbers

by

The Dewar campaign emails NDP members with its numbers and tacks on an appeal that seems designed to attack Thomas Mulcair, address Mr. Dewar’s linguistic weakness and appeal to Brian Topp’s supporters. The Mulcair campaign releases its own numbers.

According to figures obtained by Postmedia News, Mulcair’s poll has him well in front with 31.1 per cent, followed by Toronto MP Peggy Nash (17.5), former NDP president Topp (14.8), British Columbia MP Nathan Cullen, (14.2), Ottawa MP Paul Dewar (13.8), Manitoba MP Niki Ashton (5.3) and Nova Scotia pharmacist Martin Sigh (0.9).
