The Race Is On According To Poll
The race is on for those vying for the mayor's chair.
After months of Rob Ford being ahead in the polls there's been a switch.
The Ipsos Reid poll conducted for Newstalk 1010 shows George Smitherman is now leading the pack, even if it's only with a slight edge.
He now has 31 percent support, skyrocketing up eight points from a few weeks ago, overtaking front-runner Rob Ford, who has 30 per cent. Joe Pantalone is a distant third with 11 per cent support and Rocco Rossi falls further behind with four per cent support. 25 per cent are undecided.
It's a tie for gaining popularity and momentum, Smitherman and Ford are both at 31 per cent, followed by Pantalone and Rossi.
However, things aren't as neck-and-neck when considering those who will actually go out and vote on election day, with Smitherman has 38 percent support. Ford trails by six points, followed by, again, Pantalone (15%) and Rossi (3%). 17 per cent are undecided.
