Toronto Mayor More Popular Than Obama, Congress

A new poll shows embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has a 42 percent approval rating.
CNN -- A new poll shows embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has a 42 percent approval rating.

The poll from forum research was taken Wednesday -- two days after the Toronto city council stripped ford of most of his powers. That move followed Ford's admission that he smoked crack cocaine in a "drunken stupor."

About a thousand Toronto voters participated in the survey.

At 42-percent, Ford is still enjoying a higher approval rating than U.S. leaders.

A Gallup poll taken the week of November 7th shows congress at a nine percent approval rating.

Another Gallup poll put President Obama's approval rating at an all-time low of 39 percent just this past week.

And a CNN/ORC poll also conducted this past week put the president's approval rating at 41 percent.
