Crombie 18 points ahead of Mahoney

TORONTO OCTOBER 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%).

Well, Bonnie 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. Lorne Bozinoff.
