DPP presidential candidates set for TV debate

By Vincent Y. Chao  /  Staff Reporter

Both Tsai and Su are eagerly seeking to use the televised session to break out of the neck-and-neck contest that has so far marked the DPP primary.

An Apple Daily poll released yesterday gives Tsai a slight lead over Su in the nominations, but the figures are still well within the margin of error.

If the elections were held now, Tsai would lose to President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), 41.63 percent to 43.13 percent. Su would lose 39.14 percent to Ma’s 44.02 percent.

The poll, which asked 1,004 voting age respondents, was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday.
