Doug Ford poll

New poll puts Doug Ford neck and neck with John Tory

A new poll by Forum Research promises that the last three weeks of the Toronto mayoral race will be interesting. Despite every other polling company having John Tory comfortably in the lead, Forum's latest numbers suggest that the race is much tighter than has been previously thought. According to survey results released late Monday, the mayoral race breaks down as follows: John Tory takes 39 per cent of the projected vote, followed by Doug Ford at 37 per cent, and Olivia Chow at 22 per cent.

When the margin of error for the poll is factored in, Ford and Tory basically stand in the same position. That's a dramatic change from Forum's last effort, which had the candidates separated by 10 per cent just last week. The survey is based on a sample size of 1,218, so make of it what you will. For context, the last poll from Mainstreet Technologies, also released yesterday, put Tory ahead by 14 per cent. Who's screwing up, one wonders?
