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.
