John Tory

Tory carries six point lead over Ford in latest poll

John Tory is six points ahead of Doug Ford with less than two weeks to go before the municipal election, according to a new poll by Forum Research. In the company's last poll on October 6th, Tory and Ford were neck and neck. Forum has the current breakdown of candidates as follows: Tory at 39 per cent, Ford at 33 per cent, and Olivia Chow at 23 per cent.

Tory's numbers have not risen between the two surveys, but Ford has dipped despite the fact that his approval rating remains relatively stable (40 per cent compared to 43 per cent last time). Meanwhile Olivia Chow has yet to make an end-of-campaign surge. This election certainly isn't in the books yet, but it continues to look like it's a two horse race as advance voting has already begun.
