Do You Think Naheed Nenshi Will Win the Alberta NDP Leadership Race?

There’s been much buzz about the Alberta NDP’s leadership race since former Calgary mayor and newly joined NDP member Naheed Nenshi entered the race.

He’s vying to replace long-time leader and former premier Rachel Notley, who announced she was stepping down in January, and he’s already getting attention from members of the governing United Conservative Party.

A March Leger poll suggests he might have favourable support — 40 per cent of those surveyed “would be more likely to vote for the Alberta NDP if Naheed Nenshi were to win the leadership race.”

Still, he’ll have to muscle past a stacked field of candidates that includes Calgary-Mountain View MLA Kathleen Ganley, Edmonton-Whitemud MLA Rakhi Pancholi, Edmonton-Glenora MLA Sarah Hoffman, Edmonton-Rutherford MLA Jodi Calahoo Stonehouse and Alberta Federation of Labour leader Gil McGowan.

With all this in mind, we want to ask:

Do you think Naheed Nenshi will win the Alberta NDP leadership race?
