John Tory poll

John Tory widens his lead in latest Nanos poll

With under two months left in the Toronto mayoral race, the latest poll puts John Tory in a commanding lead, with a 14 per cent cushion over Olivia Chow and 16 per cent over Rob Ford. This is the second poll from Nanos to give the former provincial PC leader a significant lead over his opponents, though it has widened even more since the last survey in early July. Back then, Nanos put Tory just over six percentage points ahead of Chow.

While a recent poll from Forum Research ranks the candidates in the same order, it showed a much tighter race with Tory at 36 per cent, followed by Ford at 31 and Chow at 26. Tory may or may not have got some bad news regarding his transit plans today, but according to this poll at least, the race is his to lose with 53 days left before election night.
