Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted to smoking crack cocaine, has been in "drunken stupors," and was caught on camera in an expletive-laced rant. But he's still having a better month than President Barack Obama.
Ford has the approval of 42 percent of 1,049 Toronto voters surveyed by Forum Research. The poll results, released on Friday, came as Ford saw most of his powers stripped by the city council in Canada's largest city.
South of the border, Obama must wish he were doing that well.
Ford, who was elected in 2010 on a pledge to cut government spending, also has said he bought illegal drugs and drove after drinking. The mayor has been lampooned on late-night TV for his erratic behavior, which includes a drunken rant caught on camera and knocking over a city council member.
Obama has also been the butt of late-night jokes over various fiascoes since his second term began in January widespread snooping on Americans and world leaders by the National Security Agency, the IRS' targeting of conservative and tea party groups, and, lately, the botched rollout of Obamacare.
These scandals have caused the president's approval ratings to plunge to new lows in recent weeks.
A CNN/ORC International poll released on Thursday showed that only 41 percent of Americans liked his performance in the White House, the lowest level in CNN polling. Fifty-six percent said they disapproved, an all-time high in CNN surveys.

Is the payment system ready yet?
OK, OK, maybe not next week but sooner or later it will get fixed.
Maybe next month, maybe a year from now after the election. Time doesn't matter when you are implementing social justice.
Then when Americans figure out that they can WILL a great deal on medicaid, like it or not, they wont care that their insurance and doctor that they paid for was taken away from them.
Hey, even DC’s former crack smoking and crack-licking mayor Marion Barry has a higher rating than Obama, and he was jailed for it.
Please do not encourage the president...
Obviously because of ****racism****. /s
Keep in mind that the mainstream media’s support for Democrats is worth 10-15 points in the polls. So if they weren’t in bed with Mr. Obama, his ratings would be in the upper 20s, like Harry Truman after he fired General MacArthur.
