Want China Times
By: Tsai Hao-hsiang and Staff Reporter
Statistics from TVBS, a satellite television channel based in Taipei, suggested that 32% of Taiwanese people will vote for major opposition Democratic Progressive Party chair Tsai Ing-wen and 31% will vote Hung Hsiu-chu, a potential candidate for the ruling Kuomintang in the 2016 presidential election, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily
This could mean an all female race for the presidency if Hung, who now trails Tsai by just 1%, is selected in the party primary.
Support for Hung among the over-60s rose 24%; whereas Tsai’s following among the 30-39 age group and the over-60s fell by 22%.
Tsai recently visited the White House and was permitted to enter the State Department of the United States, a first for a Taiwanese presidential candidate.
