Doug Ford closes in on John Tory in a new Forum poll

Yesterday’s Mainstreet Technologies poll showed John Tory maintaining his commanding lead over both Doug Ford and Olivia Chow, but a Forum Research poll released today tells a much different story. The phone survey of 1218 Toronto residents shows Tory and Ford in a virtual tie, with Chow still trailing far behind. The disparity between this and the Mainstreet poll is beyond either one’s margin of error, so one or both of them could very well be flat-out wrong. (To be fair, any poll can be wrong; it’s an occupational hazard.) If other polls start to agree with this one, though, Ford followers may have something to celebrate. The rest of the city, not so much.
