A new poll suggests Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown is the least appealing candidate of those seeking to become the federal leader of the Conservatives.

The Angus Reid poll conducted between March 10-15 shows that Brown is polling at 6 per cent by those who responded. At the time four candidates had declared their leadership bid.

Brown follows Pierre Poilievre (26 per cent), Jean Charest (20 per cent), Leslyn Lewis (14 per cent) and Patrick Brown (6 per cent).

Angus Reid contacted 5,105 people for the poll and asked the question, “who – if any – of the candidates appealed to them?” The largest number of respondents, at 30 per cent, indicated none of the candidates appealed to them.

A Leger poll conducted two weeks ago found similar results with Brown at 4 per cent following Poilievre and Charest.

Since these polls were taken three others have entered the race: Scott Aitchison, Roman Barber and Joseph Bourgault.
