臺灣人的意見 (Public Opinion in Taiwan)

遠見 is sort of like a Taiwanese Gallup and publishes many public opinion pieces in Taiwan each year. They put out this yearly political survey many months ago and I am finally getting around to posting what I found most interesting.

Like in the US, 2012 is an election year for Taiwan so Mr. Ma’s approval rating is pretty important.

The blue and green lines represent satisfied and unsatisfied.   The red and black lines represent confidence and no confidence.  In summery, Mr. Ma is not too popular and the public is evenly divided on his competence.

Of course what to do about sovereignty is always the $1M USD question and the graph below sums things up nicely.

The gray line represents, 先維持現狀再看情形, or maintaining the status quo and deciding how to proceed sometime in the future has the most support at around 41%.   A smaller 28% (the red line) approve of independence.  Smaller minorities want to maintain the status quo indefinitely (13.5%) and approve of reunification (7.1%).
