Wow, Rob Ford is now only footsteps away from becoming the next Mayor of Toronto, and it seems that no matter what propaganda the Toronto Star, that moron Marcus Gee from the Globe and Mail, or any other self-serving shameful news organization tries to push onto Torontonians to persuade us against voting for Rob Ford, we are not interested.
Toronto has spoken, and we want a new Mayor, a new City Council, and a completely new approach and philosophy in Toronto Politics. And that all begins and ends with Rob Ford!
The latest poll by Nanos Research just came out, and it puts Rob Ford in 1st place, far, far, far ahead of all of the other candidates, including George Smitherman, who is now over 24 points behind Rob Ford.
Here are the details from the Toronto Sun:
Ford takes commanding lead in mayor's race: CP24 poll
Rob Ford has surged ahead of the pack with a commanding lead over his rivals in the Toronto mayoralty race.
The latest Nanos poll, commissioned by CP24, CTV and the Globe and Mail, puts Ford in the lead with 45.8 per cent of decided voters –- 24 points ahead of his biggest rival George Smitherman.
"We're just being very, very humble," Ford said upon hearing the results. "I'm working very hard."
Smitherman, who served as deputy premier before stepping down from provincial politics earlier this year, has 21.3 per cent of support from decided voters.
Toronto's deputy mayor Joe Pantalone made significant strides since the last CP24 poll in June. He now has 16.8 per cent of support from decided voters. Rocco Rossi (9.7%) and Sarah Thomson (6.4 per cent) round up the pack of front-runners.
A total of 1,021 people were polled through random telephone interviews between Sept. 14 and 16. The margin of accuracy for a random sample of 1,021 likely voters is 3.1 percentage points, plus or minus, 19 times out of 20.

PS: Oh Toronto Star... What are you going to do now? You lied and pushed your propaganda onto Torontonians to try and manipulate us into not voting for Rob Ford, and as a result, Ford has cut you off completely from any kind of interviews and etc. going forward. Now what are you going to do when he becomes the next Mayor of Toronto?? What kind of relevant newspaper can't get an interview with the Mayor of their own city??!! Ha ha ha!! That's what you get for having absolutely no journalistic integrity in regards to this Toronto Mayoral Race... I mean, you even went and modified his Wikipedia Bio to try and manipulate this Mayoral Race... You made your bed, now you can lay in it with George Smitherman... ;)
