(Taipei Times, By Chen Wei-han) Despite a stagnant approval rating, President Tsai Ing-wen is still the preferred president over Hon Hai Precision Industry Co chairman Terry Gou and New Taipei City Mayor Eric Chu, while the Democratic Progressive Party has a comfortable lead over the Chinese Nationalist Party in voter preference, an opinion poll released yesterday showed. Tsai’s approval rating stands at 54 percent, with a 39.7 percent disapproval rating, while 52.9 percent of the respondents were dissatisfied with her performance and 41.3 percent were satisfied.
