Mayor Tory’s approval holds steady and high

Most popular among the oldest and wealthiest

TORONTO March 23rd - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 908 Toronto voters, close to three quarters approve of the job John Tory is doing as mayor (72%) and this is consistent with his recent assessments (February 23 - 71%, January 29 - 76%).

Approval of Tory is especially characteristic of the oldest (82%), the wealthy ($80K to $100K - 80%), in the downtown (77%), among those who voted for him, obviously (91%) but also among Chow voters (74%) and among the best educated (post grad - 80%).

“Mr. Tory is adept at not putting a foot wrong, even if he rarely ventures a foot in any direction without hedging his bets. He is a consummate expectations manager," said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
