TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) public approval rating is 39.4 percent, while 51.8 percent of the public are dissatisfied with her performance in handling national affairs and policies, according to a monthly survey released Monday.
The disapproval rating was significantly higher than the 8.8 percent in the poll published a year ago, shortly after Tsai of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) took office on May 20, 2016, said the Taiwan Public Opinion Foundation.
The foundation has had the survey on the Tsai government’s performance conducted every month since it was inaugurated last May.
The government’s approval rating has since dropped from a high of 69.9 percent to 39.4 percent, the survey shows. [FULL STORY]
