Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s approval rating rose slightly after Police Chief Bill Blair confirmed the existence of a video in which Ford appears to smoke crack cocaine and make homophobic and racist remarks, according to a poll taken Thursday night by Forum Research.
The poll found that 44 per cent of voters approve of the job Rob Ford is doing as mayor, while an Oct. 28 poll found that just 39 per cent approved.
“That may sound counterintuitive. It could be a sampling, margin-of-error thing, or it could be just some sympathy,” said Lorne Bozinoff, president of Forum Research. “If you saw him during that media scrum yesterday, it might have generated some sympathy.”

Ah, yes, there is nothing else in politics like the old crack popularity bump.
I'm sure the Toronto voters are looking at a glass half full, I mean he could be doing something worse... oh wait, never mind.
With Obama's popularity at record low right now, it might be the time to whip out that crack pipe to get a little headway in the polls.
