Mayor John Tory has 72% approval rating: report

Toronto Mayor John Tory speaks to reporters on Feb. 3, 2016. CITYNEWS.

Mayor John Tory is more popular than he was last month, but not as popular as he was at the beginning of the year.

Sounds like high school.

In the latest Forum Research poll, published in the Toronto Sun, the mayor has a 72-per-cent approval rating.

It’s up a bit from the 71 per cent he registered in February, but down from his 76-per-cent rating in January.

Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff told the Sun that Tory is a “consummate expectations manager.” As a mayor, Tory has been relatively unsurprising. He is known to spend a lot of time consulting and speaking publicly about a subject before announcing his decision.

The poll found Tory is most popular among older residents and those earning between $80,000 and $100,000 a year.
