The lead enjoyed by the chair of Taiwan’s opposition Democratic Progressive Party, Tsai
Ing-wen, over her strongest potential opponent from the rival Kuomintang in the 2016 presidential race is narrowing, according to the results of a survey released Wednesday.
The survey conducted by the KMT-leaning United Daily News had Tsai, who will represent the DPP in the election slated for early next year, beating KMT chair and New Taipei mayor Eric Chu by a 42%-34% margin.
Six percent of respondents said they did not support either of the two, and 18% said they were undecided.
The eight-point gap was down from the 14-point advantage Tsai held in a similar poll two months ago, when she received 47% support to 33% for Chu. [FULL STORY]
