Rob Ford seen to be best of last 8 Toronto Mayors
One quarter say Rob Ford is the best of Toronto's mayors going back to David Crombie (22%), followed by David Miller (19%), Mel Lastman (14%) and David Crombie (13%). Few give consideration to Barbara Hall or Art Eggleton (4% each) or, indeed, John Sewell (2%) or June Rowlands (1%).
How the hell can someone who is essentially the cause of all of his problems, a walking tornado of controversy and issues who came to this job with the intent to stop the "gravy train" but has failed spectacularly to do anything, be considered the best mayor in 40 years!?
According to the Forum poll from where this information comes from, 48% approve of Ford (up from 45%), with 52% disapproving. For someone as useless as he has been in office, this amazes me.
Forum did some mayoral trial heats - essentially, polling - and the news isn't necessarily good
As expected, Ford's support comes from the suburbs - Etobicoke, North York, and Scarborough. These people somehow see this guy as the one who will give the suburbs a voice. I honestly do not understand it. What has he offered anyone? He can't control Council, his own stupidity caused that conflict of interest ruling, and he's an all-around mess.
This is the representatives of the suburbs? I feel ashamed.
