It seems Toronto mayoral challenger Jennifer Keesmaat has not really prosecuted her case against incumbent John Tory very well.
That’s the analysis of a Forum Research poll which suggests 56 percent of decided and leaning Toronto voters support Mayor Tory in his re-election bid. Tory also has a 56 percent approval rating.
Jennifer Keesmaat has 29 percent support among Toronto voters, but she’s nearly tied with Tory for voter support in the old City of Toronto.
Keesmaat told Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back with Libby Znaimer earlier this week, she feels Toronto is not progressing under Tory.
But Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff says Keesmaat’s message is not really resonating with suburban Toronto voters who really like what John Tory has done as mayor the past four years.
It’s worth noting that the other Toronto mayoral candidates make up about 15 percent support combined among Toronto voters.
Mayor John Tory will be in studio with Libby to take voters’ calls on Monday October 15th at noon.
The Brampton mayoral race is one to watch with incumbent Linda Jeffrey against former Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown. Jeffrey brings her message to Zoomer Radio’s Fight Back with Libby Znaimer at about 12:40 this afternoon (Thursday October 11th).
