TORONTO -- Mayor Rob Ford would have a tough time beating almost anyone in the next election, a new poll reveals.

A Forum Research poll provided exclusively to the Toronto Sun on Wednesday tested Ford against several possible mayoral contenders and found, depending on the match-up, he’d be in a statistical tie with TTC chair Karen Stintz, lose to NDP MP Olivia Chow and get thumped by former Ontario PC leader John Tory.

The poll, conducted Monday, found in a race between the three declared candidates of Ford, Stintz and David Soknacki, the incumbent mayor would get 36% support while Stintz would get 35%, 18% would be undecided and Soknacki would have around 11%.
