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]
