That approval rating is down from 47% when Forum conducted a poll two weeks ago.
The number of those polled who say they would cast their vote for Ford in the next election sits at 37% — down slightly from 41% two weeks ago. Around 57% said they won’t vote for Ford this year and 6% said they don’t know.
But the poll finds that in hypothetical match-ups against NDP MP Olivia Chow or radio show host John Tory, Ford would end up in a possible tie.
In a three-way race with just Councillor Karen Stintz and former councillor David Soknacki, Ford would win with 36% of those polled, compared to 29% for Stintz and 19% for Soknacki. Another 17% didn’t know who they would vote for.
If Chow were to jump into that mix of candidates as well, Ford and Chow would be in a statistical tie with 37% and 35%, respectively. Stintz would receive the support of 13% of voters and Soknacki would capture 9% of the ballots. Another 7% were undecided.
If Tory were also to join the race, Ford and Chow would be virtually tied with 30% and 31% respectively, ahead of Tory, 24%, Stintz 7%, Soknacki 4% — and 4% undecided.
