compared with last month’s poll.
Taiwanese Public Opinion Foundation published the survey results on Monday, which showed a drop of 7.6 percentage points from last month in the satisfaction level that Taiwanese people have over President Tsai Ing-wen’s handling of major issues.
The drop was even more acute if compared with the same poll in May, when President Tsai was sworn into office, showing a decline of 25.2 percentage points.
Premier Lin Chuan fared worse, with the poll revealing that 40.9 percent of Taiwanese people don’t think his administration is capable of solving problems, against 34.6 percent who think otherwise.
On the other hand, the poll also shows that a total of 49.2 percent of people in Taiwan prefer independence over unification (17.8 percent) and maintaining of the status quo (20.5 percent). The survey result presents a consistency among Taiwanese as to what their preferences on the independence-unification issue are.
