    Default NDP: Mulcair voted out

    Mulcair leadership vote got just 48%

    Perhaps the federal NDP might be swinging back to the far left. Kinda sounds like what's recently happened with the Labour Party in the UK.

    Stephen Lewis might have swung the vote here.

    He was good at the beginning as a leader in 2012 but now he is pretty much out of touch with many NDP supporters.

    He has been out of touch for a while. Not surprising at all.

    He's been out of touch on what exactly?

    My understanding is that he was too closely aligned with Liberal policy. The Fed NDP is swinging far, far left. AB NDP better totally separate from their federal counterparts.

    I wasn't shocked/surprised. He lost the election , and didn't have the gonads to say sorry, or remotely say it was because of him. Bye Tom.

    When you a #3 party, you have to try much harder. He was likable but certainly not a person that would garner attention even in a small room with 10 people in it. A leader must draw attention to what they have to say, instill confidence and be dynamic in leading the party with their vision. Mulcair makes for an excellent NDP supporter but was sadly lacking in leading the party.
