Crack-Smoking Toronto Mayor More Popular Than Obama

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford

Toronto’s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford is more popular than Barack Obama.

After all, Ford is only smoking crack and running over old ladies. Obama is taking away your health insurance.

The Telegraph reported:

Rob Ford, the crack-smoking mayor of Toronto, has a higher approval rating than Barack Obama, according to a survey.

A Forum Research survey of 1,049 Toronto voters found that 42 per cent approved of the job Mr Ford has been doing as mayor of Canada’slargest city.

Although it is a two point drop from two weeks ago, it is up from the 39 per cent approval rating he had before he admitted smoking crack cocaine.

By comparison, earlier this week Mr Obama’s popularity slumped to an all-time low, with only 37 per cent of Americans approving of the job he is doing.

The result suggests that Mr Ford could still be competitive in next year’s municipal election, although only 33 per cent of those polled said they would vote for him in 2014.
