Ford Approval Ticks Up After Crack Video Confirmed

A new Forum Research poll finds Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's approval rating rose slightly after police confirmed the existence of a video in which Ford appears to smoke crack cocaine and make homophobic and racist remarks.

The poll found that 44% of voters approve of the job Ford is doing as mayor, while an Oct. 28 poll found that just 39% approved.

Said pollster Lorne Bozinoff: "That may sound counterintuitive. It could be a sampling, margin-of-error thing, or it could be just some sympathy. If you saw him during that media scrum yesterday, it might have generated some sympathy."
