People First Party (PFP) presidential candidate James Soong’s (宋楚瑜) support rating has fallen behind that of Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) candidate Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱), a poll by Taiwan Indicators Survey Research (TISR) showed yesterday.
Since Soong announced his candidacy last month, he had consistently scored above Hung in surveys by different institutions and media outlets. However, the latest survey by TISR showed Hung surpassing Soong by a small margin.
The survey showed that 15.4 percent of respondents said they support Hung, against 14.7 percent for Soong, while 11.8 percent said they would not vote or would cast invalid votes, and 14.7 percent said they are still undecided.
Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) continued to lead her two rivals, garnering 43.6 percent support. [FULL STORY]
