Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.
Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.
Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.
Statistically, that’s dead even.
Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.
