Greater Kaohsiung City Mayor Chen Chu of Taiwan's main opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) might receive 56-percent votes with a 36-percentage-point lead over her most-likely rival the former Kaohsiung County Magistrate Yang Chiu-hsing, according to a poll released by the Chinese-language United Daily News on Friday.

Besides, the poll shows that Chen Chu received a glittering 72 percent approval rating, which explains Chen's lead in the survey for the 2014 year-end election. The poll also shows that up to 60 percent of Pan-Blue supporters are satisfied with Chen's governance performance. In addition, 60 percent of neutral voters approve Chen's performance and support her re-election.

The DPP has confirmed Chen Chu’s nomination for Kaohsiung City Mayor, and the Kuomintang (KMT) has yet to decide the party’s candidate, though Yang has been rumored to be nominated by KMT to run against Chen. Poll shows that 56 percent of participants would vote Chen; 20-percent vote Yang; 6-percent vote neither of them; and the remaining 19-percent still undecided.

The survey was based on the telephone interviews with 1,001 Kaohsiung registered voters conducted between December 22 and 24 evenings. The sampling error was plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
