NOTES: The latest poll from Forum Research finds John Tory holding on to his lead in the mayoral race—falling 1 percentage point from early August—but also reveals that support for the mayor is building: Rob Ford was polling at 27 per cent earlier this month, but that’s now risen to 31 percent, putting him within 3 percentage points of first-place Tory. (It’s the first time the mayor has gone above 27 per cent in the last four-and-a-half months.) And fewer voters now believe the mayor should resign: while 63 per cent thought he should step down in early June, 50 per cent would now be in favour of such a move.
