Rob Ford's comeback falters according to latest poll

The last Forum Research poll regarding the Toronto mayoral race hinted at the possibility of a Ford comeback, but that appears in doubt according to new numbers released by the company today. In what amounts to his best numbers so far, John Tory leads with 40 per cent over Ford with 28 per cent and Chow at 21 per cent. Forum's last poll had all three candidates much closer, with Tory at 36 per cent, Ford at 31 per cent and Chow at 26 per cent.

In other news David Soknacki seemed to be finally making an impression on voters with sharp increases in his visibility and approval rating. That will go for naught now that he has pulled out of the race (and it probably was too late anyway). Approval ratings for the leading candidates remain steady from Forum's last poll in late August (Ford has dropped slightly from 39 per cent to 34 per cent). With seven weeks to go before election night and a whole lot of debates left to go, much can still change, but both Ford and Chow look to be playing major catch up.
