Solid majority approves of John Tory

In the benchmark Toronto-wide wave of the Campaign Research Poll, a randomly sampled, representative telephone survey of national, provincial and municipal issues, Toronto Mayor John Tory has the approval of a solid majority of the city’s residents (56%), and fewer than one quarter disapprove of the job he’s doing (23%). One fifth don’t offer an opinion (21%). His net favourable score (approve minus disapprove) is therefore a healthy and positive +33. Approval of the Mayor’s performance is especially high among males (59%) as opposed to females (51%), among the oldest (65+ - 72%), the wealthiest (72%) and among provincial Liberals (67%). Union members are more likely to disapprove of the mayor than others (31%).

“The mayor is popular among those who vote; men, the elderly and the wealthy. This is the kind of coalition which can deliver a solid result on election day,” said Eli Yufest, CEO of Campaign Research. Eli can be reached at or at (416) 618 6562


This poll was conducted on January 29, 2017 among a randomly selected sample of 342 Toronto residents. The poll was conducted by Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5%, 19 times out of 20.
