Talk about "high" marks!
Even after admitting to smoking crack cocaine, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has a higher job approval rating than President Obama, thanks to the commander in chief's disastrous Obamacare website rollout.
A new poll Friday shows Ford still has a secure 42% approval rating among Toronto voters even after his drug scandal topping Obama's approval rating of 41%.

Ford's numbers post-scandal are actually higher than the 39% approval rating he posted in late October, before he admitted to smoking crack cocaine, according to a Forum Research survey of 1,049 Toronto voters released this week.
A Forum Research poll from two weeks ago, on Nov. 6, showed he had a slightly higher approval rating at 44%.
Though a large portion of Torontonians still seem to approve of Ford's job performance - an overwhelming portion, 60%, say Ford should resign.

Sixty-nine percent said they believe the mayor has a substance-abuse problem, which he has denied. He insists he does not need to seek substance or alcohol treatment but only needs help as he tries to lose weight.
President Obama, in comparison, has a 41% approval rating thanks the disastrous Obamacare website rollout.

Ford has admitted to using drugs in a "drunken stupor," told the Toronto City Council that had purchased illegal drugs and even addressed sexual harassment claims in a series of embarrassing and expletive-laden press conferences.
Despite avoiding scandal, New York's Mayor Bloomberg is just a few points higher than Ford in terms of his job approval rating.

He very likely could be. The man is just as crude as can be, and there is something really wrong with him. I think he's hellbent at going out of control, if he isn't already. He reminds me too much of Marion Barry for some reason.

He needs to go, for sure. I have to wonder how long he can hold up physically...looking and acting like Chris Farley and being ten years older is pretty scary.

Exactly. He's gonna stroke out one of these days if he keeps it up. Not a teetotaller, but there are healthier ways to deal with the stress and lose weight!

I find it stunning that our adolescent president can get 41% approval. Watch it plummet as the "blacks" discover he is half white with a wink and nod from the plantation overseeers.
