Mahoney, Crombie in tie for Mississauga Mayor
APRIL 12th, 2014 - In
a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 612
Mississauga voters, equal proportions say they will vote former MP and MPP
Steve Mahoney (27%) or Councillor Bonnie Crombie (25%) for mayor if the
Mississauga municipal election were held today. Mahoney attracts the votes of
the oldest (37%), the least educated (35%) and among Catholics (35%). Crombie
is popular among the oldest (29%), mid income groups ($40K to $60K - 39%),
non-Christians (35%). Mahoney and Crombie are in a tie north of Eglinton Avenue
(30% and 28%, respectively), while Mahoney is preferred to Crombie south of
this (27% and 22%, respectively). These findings represent a very slight increase
for Bonnie Crombie since the last time we polled this race (March 19 - Mahoney
29%, Crombie 22%).
Approval for Hazel continues
to be high, also for candidates
Mississaugans approve of the job Hazel McCallion is doing as mayor (85%), and
this is consistent with past findings (March 19 - 86%). Six-in-ten are aware of
Bonnie Crombie (60%), and, of these, a similar proportion approve of her (61%).
Fewer are aware of Steve Mahoney (47%), but approval is high as well (63%).
race has settled in since the last time we polled it and both leading
candidates are pretty evenly matched. They're both running active campaigns, so
we may expect to see one of them try something surprising to break out of the
