It also lists John Tory as "John Troy", so, y'know, pinch of saltanyone know what poll this chart is from? it adds up to more than 100% though.

Exactly. For all non-Rob Ford voters thinking about voting for Chow or Goldkind or a fire hydrant you need to get it into your fucking heads that this is not a normal election. The City Of Toronto is constipated badly and we need the most effective medicine now to dislodge the shit. Once the bowels are clear and the anus is healed then we can move forward. If Tory sucks, then we vote him out next time. Now is not the time for semantics or complacency. Smartrack could be Smrtrack I don't care if it involves chariots and ziplines. Ford must go, this is the only thing that matters.so your voting for Ford essentially?
Everyone: I learned about David Soknacki dropping out of the Toronto Mayor campaign this morning and I actually think that
http://poll.forumresearch.com/post/133/tory-opens-12-point-lead-in-toronto/In what way? Ford support clearly maxes out at no more than 30%. The two remaining serious candidates at worst split 70%.
I don't like this poll the respondents are way to skewed to the over 55 crowd...they represent less than 18% of the general population however in this poll represent 62% of responders wheras 18-34's represent 30.5% of the general population and only 7.6% of responders....http://poll.forumresearch.com/post/133/tory-opens-12-point-lead-in-toronto/
Look at the numbers. If all things remain equal until election day, Chow has absolutely no chance at all.
The only direction Chow's numbers are going is down as her progressive base realize that ousting Ford is more important. Only her hardcore supporters who think misleadingly that Tory is "Ford without the nonsense who can actually implement conservative policies" will continue to vote for Chow.
I don't think Chow should bow-out, but in your hypothetical situation, I'd add Eglinton Connects to your list.If I were Chow, I'd bow out, with an agreement in writing from Tory that he supports some of her progressive initiatives. It would be a graceful exit and would avoid her mayoral election legacy being that of the candidate who burned out in flames, and rather, as the kingmaker to oust Ford.
This signed agreement could include commitments from Tory to:
- Support his original - and widely agreed upon - DRL alignment, while still going ahead with SmartTrack
- Invest in school breakfast programs
- Increase bus services in under-serviced communities
Chow really blew it spectacularly. She's the only left wing candidate in the race and yet she is at 3rd place behind Ford.Latest Forum poll: http://poll.forumresearch.com/post/133/tory-opens-12-point-lead-in-toronto/
In the three way race it's Tory 41%, Ford 30%, Chow 24%.
How is that misleading? Please explain how this platform is not conservative:Only her hardcore supporters who think misleadingly that Tory is "Ford without the nonsense who can actually implement conservative policies" will continue to vote for Chow.
