Rocco Rossi drops out of Toronto mayoral race

CANADA - Seriously... who was going to vote for a bald guy named Rocco Rossi???

According to polls 4% of Torontonians were thinking of voting for the leftwing bald man with glasses who looks a bit like legendary villain Lex Luthor (Superman's arch enemy).

Today Rocco Rossi quit the Toronto mayor’s race after a new poll showed he was dead last and his meagre support collapsing while Rob Ford and George Smitherman fought in the 30% range.

Unlike Sarah Thomson who dropped out 2 weeks ago and supported George Smitherman, Rossi has decided to quietly drop out and not endorse any other candidates.

The Ipsos Reid poll conducted over the Thanksgiving weekend gave the following numbers:

Rob Ford 30% (who a few weeks ago was leading at 45.8%)
George Smitherman 31%
Joe Pantalone 11%
Rocco Rossi 4%

25% of respondents remain undecided. The poll’s margin of error is 4.9%, 19 times out of 20.
