David Soknacki drops out of the mayoral race as his poll numbers continue to flatline
Tuesday night was a sad one for a certain kind of voter as policy-nerd-favourite David Soknacki, citing weak (but growing) support, announced that he would be ending his largely self-funded mayoral campaign. A new poll of 1069 voters released this morning by Forum Research seems to confirm Soknacki’s fears: it, like almost every poll before it, puts him in last place by a wide margin. For John Tory, meanwhile, there’s good news. Like last week’s Nanos poll, this one shows him starting to build a nice lead over Rob Ford and especially Olivia Chow, whose support, the poll finds, is particularly weak in Scarborough.
