A new poll conducted by Forum Research suggests that Toronto Mayor John Tory maintains strong support from the public.
According to the poll, which was conducted last week, 72 per cent of Torontonians said they support the work Tory has done since his election as mayor.
“Mr. Tory is adept at not putting a foot wrong, even if he rarely ventures a foot in any direction without hedging his bets,” Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, the president and founder of Forum Research, said in a news release. “He is a consummate expectations manager.”
The poll, which was released Monday, sampled 908 random Toronto voters. The survey found that Mayor Tory had the highest approval rating among older participants, at 82 per cent, and wealthier participants, at 80 per cent.
Forum Research Inc. is a market research firm, located in Toronto, which conducts market and consumer research across various fields.
The poll is considered accurate plus or minus 3 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
