Tory Still Leads
Tory’s approval more than half
Toronto, October 9th – In a random sampling of public
opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 987 Toronto voters, amongst those
decided and leaning, Tory sees support from more than half of voters (56%)
unchanged from September (September 25: 56%).
Keesmaat sees support from almost one-third (29%) similar to where
she was in September (September 25: 28%).
The other candidates see support from about one-sixth (15%).
Tory’s approval (56%) is up four points since September (September
25: 52%) and his disapproval (30%) is about the same (September 25: 32%).
About one-sixth (13%) say they do not know.
“Things are not looking positive for the
Keesmaat campaign right now,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum
Research. “Tory looks to have a double-digit lead, and, with only 2 weeks to go
before election day, it’s a lead that may be very difficult to erase. Politics
is a game where few results are completely unpredictable, but at this point, a
Keesmaat victory would almost certainly require a Tory collapse.”
