2012 ELECTIONS: ANAYSIS: Ma on defensive in re-election bid after ‘Dreamers’ fiasco

AFP, TAIPEI

“The musical dealt a heavy blow to Ma’s campaign, as reflected in opinion polls, and it remains to be seen if he can pick up momentum,” Tung said.

Last week, a TVBS poll had the candidates tied at 39 percent each, while People First Party Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) had 9 percent. The rest of the 1,320 people surveyed were undecided.

This marked a decline of three percentage points for Ma from a poll released on Oct. 26, while Tsai enjoyed an increase of 6 percentage points.
