John Tory maintains his lead in the latest mayoral poll

With the municipal election now just a month away, John Tory remains comfortably ahead of both Olivia Chow and Doug Ford in the mayoral race, according to a new poll conducted on Sunday by Mainstreet Technologies. The survey was an unusually large one, with 2,469 respondents and a margin of error of ±1.98%, and was done by Interactive Voice Response (i.e. robocalls), which some pollsters aren’t fans of. That didn’t stop Mainstreet Technologies’ president Quito Maggi from drawing a conclusion or two: in spite of other polling that put Doug Ford’s support first at 34%, then at 28%, Maggi is quoted in a press release as saying that Ford “could threaten Tory before election day,” since “John Tory may have peaked too early and has little room to grow.”
