Tory headed for victory in Toronto mayoral election: exclusive CityNews poll

John Tory will be the next mayor of Toronto according to a new Forum Research poll conducted exclusively for CityNews.

The new poll, which will be the final one before Torontonians cast their vote on Monday, shows Tory with a commanding 12 point lead over Doug Ford.

The numbers show Tory at 44 per cent, up one per cent from last week, and Ford at 32 per cent, up three per cent.

Olivia Chow remains in third with 21 per cent support.

“The Tory story has been one of slow and steady progression from third to first place, and he seems destined, finally, to be mayor on Tuesday morning,” Forum Research president Dr. Lorne Bozinoff said in a statement. “Doug Ford had Ford Nation on his side, of course, but there’s a hard ceiling of about 35% on that group, and it doesn’t appear to be enough to defeat the consensus candidate.”

The poll was conducted on Oct. 25 from 986 randomly selected voters in Toronto who were absolutely certain to vote or had already voted, and has a margin of three per cent.

CityNews will have complete coverage of the Toronto mayoral election on Monday.
