Crombie 18 points ahead of Mahoney
25th, 2014 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum
Poll™ among 308 Mississauga voters, more than half of those decided or leaning
will vote for Bonnie Crombie (52%) compare to one third who will vote Steve
Mahoney (34%) if the mayoral election in Mississauga were held today. Few would
vote for Stephen King (3%), and about a tenth spread their vote amongst other
candidates (12%). Crombie's vote is common to the youngest (69%), females
(54%), the least wealthy (65%) and those east of Hurontario (63%). Mahoney's
vote is characteristic of Gen Y (35 to 44 - 47%), Males (38%), mid income
groups ($60K to $80K - 49%) and west of Hurontario (40%). These findings are
essentially stable from the last time we polled this race (October 15, Crombie
- 56%, Mahoney - 31%, King - 4%, other - 9%).
Crombie's surge in the polls after being anointed by Hazel McCallion was
clearly no passing phenomenon, and it appears she'll wear the chain of office
come Tuesday," said Forum Research President, Dr.
