Half disapprove of Rob Ford at HHOF

TORONTO, April 11th, 2015 - In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll™ among 865 Toronto voters, 7-in-10 approve of the job John Tory is doing as mayor (71%), stable since the last time we polled (March 15 - 72%). Approval is highest among the oldest (78%), the wealthiest ($100K to $250K - 78%), in the downtown (77%) and among provincial Liberal voters (77%).

Half disapprove of Rob Ford on HHOF board

One half of Toronto voters disapprove of the appointment of Rob Ford to the Board of Directors of the Hockey Hall of Fame (48%), while just less than 4-in-10 approve of this appointment (39%). Just more than a tenth have no opinion (13%). Approval of the appointment is characteristic of the least wealthy (51%), Rob Ford voters (78%), in Scarborough (45%), provincial PC voters (52%) and those who disapprove of John Tory 64%).

"The Mayor’s approval continues to remain high, and the more people see of him, the less likely their approval is to fade. Approval of Rob Ford’s appointment to the Hockey Hall of Fame’s board is dependent completely on your support of Rob Ford - his partisans think it’s a great idea, but if they were in the majority, his brother would be mayor," said Forum Research President, Dr. Lorne Bozinoff.
