A You Gov poll of Labour members has put both Greater Manchester Labour MP’s trailing in the race to become next Labour leader.
The survey of Labour members, registered supporters and affiliates puts Kier Starmer on 53%, enough for him to win on the first round of voting.Rebecca Long-Bailey is in second place on 31%, with Lisa Nandy on 16%.
The poll also suggests that Angela Rayner will be named Labour’s new deputy leader when the results are announced at a special party conference on 4 April.
She is on 47%, with Richard Burgon on 19%, Rosena Allin-Khan on 13%, Dawn Butler on 12% and Ian Murray on 9%.That means she would comfortably win on the second round.
Ballot papers were sent out earlier this week and the result will be announced on the 4th April
