Support for Hung has fallen by 10 points, poll finds

By Alison Hsiao  /  Staff reporter

The poll also saw a new high for the past 20 months in the public’s support of the view that Taiwan is currently a sovereign country, which hit 76 percent.

Curiously, those aged 40 to 49 were most likely to hold that view, at 80.3 percent, while 32.3 percent of respondents aged 20 to 29 disagreed.

“However, 84.1 percent of those aged 20 to 29 and 76 percent of the 30 to 39 age group said Taiwan should become an independent country in the future,” research department director Li Ming-juinn (李明峻) said.

“That demonstrates that young people are apparently not satisfied with Taiwan’s current state, and they are the future generation,” he said.
