Crombie’s Favourables Remain High

Approval cuts across all demographics

OTTAWA, May 24th, 2016 – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 722 Mississauga voters, approval of the job being done by Mayor Bonnie Crombie is characteristic of about three quarters (73%), and this is very similar the score she received one month ago (April 18 - 72%). Mayor Crombie’s approval is especially high among the young mid aged (35 to 44 - 79%) and the oldest (65+ - 79%), the least wealthy (87%) and the wealthier ($80K to $100K - 87%), but not to the very wealthiest ($100K to $250K - 61%). This group (the wealthiest) is the only demographic in which the mayor’s approval falls below 7-in-10.

In comparison to Mayor Crombie’s very positive approvals, in our most recent polling, we have seen other popular mayors (May 17, John Tory - 75%, May 19, Jim Watson - 73%) as well as those who are less popular, such as Linda Jeffrey of Brampton (April 18 - 54%) and Gregor Robertson of Vancouver (April 24 - 50%).

“Bonnie is one of a trio of very well-regarded mayors we track regularly, and she has navigated the post-Hazel era in Mississauga with aplomb” said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
