There's a new opinion poll out in the Toronto Mayor's race.

It shows John Tory with 30 percent support, Olivia Chow at 27 percent and Rob Ford 23 percent.

The margin of error in this survey is 3.5 percent up or down. In statistical terms, Tory and Chow are tied and Ford is close behind.

Councillor Karen Stintz and David Socknacki are way back with 3 percent each.

Maple Leaf Strategies conducted the live phone poll Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. It does not say who paid for the survey.

A further breakdown asking Toronto residents for their second choice shows that Rob Ford has little or no growth potential.

Pollster Dimitri Pantazapoulos issued a statement which reads: "There is simply no room for Rob Ford's support to increase. He has what he has and he will need a game-changer to get into contention."
