TAIPEI, Taiwan — President Tsai Ing-wen’s approval ratings have hit their lowest level since she
took office in May, a new survey shows.
Tsai’s approval rating dropped to 37.6 percent in a public opinion poll released by the Taiwan Indicators Research Survey (TISR).
The TISR said that the president’s approval rating peaked at 54 percent in mid-June and has been falling since then.
Results of another survey conducted by TVBS after Tsai’s National Day address showed that the president’s approval rating had fallen to 35 percent, down from 39 percent registered during her first 100 days in office.
Presidential spokesman Alex Huang responded to the latest findings by saying that results varied across public opinion polls, but that the government would still take a look at them. [FULL STORY]
