Duly Quoted: Sarah Thomson, on Being Marginalized by the Media

Mayoral candidate finds common ground with Rob Ford on how they're being treated by the press.

“The media has tried to marginalize my candidacy, just as they have attacked the current Mayor. But the media will not decide the outcome of this election, you, along with hundreds of thousands of other real people will decide.”

-Mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson, who today exchanged the poems and horse-drawn carriages of her campaign launch for fighting words. In an email detailing the results of a Forum Research poll commissioned by her campaign, Thomson charged that the media had not been interested in covering these poll results because “the ‘Ford’ phenomenon has impacted even the way the press does their job. Instead of publishing the truth they are working to hide it.”

Here are the results of this poll, as presented in Thomson’s statement:

Forum’s poll asked, “If an election were held today, how would you vote?” With over 1000 responses, the results were as follows.

Ford 35.1
Chow 32.2
Tory 18.8
Stintz 3.2
Thomson 2.3
Soknakie
[sic] 1.7
other 6.7
