If you believe in polls, there is a surprising one out this morning.
A Forum Research survey suggests that the mayor's approval rating went up after the chief's comments on what he calls a "disappointing" video of the mayor that police have their hands on.
Before all the latest revelations, Forum had Ford's approval rating at 39 per cent. On Thursday night, after a day of headlines, that number went up to 44 per cent of those asked who approve of the job he's doing.
At the same time, 60 per cent of those who were asked say that the mayor should resign.
Newstalk 1010 host and Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington joined the Motts this morning to talk about the poll and how accurate it might be.
"We're not Amazing Kreskin here," he says. "But I'm going to take the thing at face value that they've thrown everything but the kitchen sink at the guy and he's going up in the polls. You know, let's call it what it is and give him that."
CTV journalist Lloyd Robertson also weighed in on the numbers, saying the most interesting number to him is the 60 per cent of those surveyed who are calling on the mayor to step down.
"A poll is an overnight snapshot of something and that may change the next day depending on the flow of the news coverage," Robertson told the Motts Saturday morning.
