Poll Shows Hou With Huge Lead Over Lin 綠民代新莊民調 侯支持度49.9%.林僅26.3%

An opinion poll conducted by an elected official belonging to the DPP in New Taipei City's Xinzhuang District showed that nearly 50 percent support KMT candidate Hou Yu-ih and DPP candidate Lin Chia-lung trailed far behind with 26 percent support. Hou didn't comment when asked about the poll, while Lin said the main point is that Hou's support has fallen under 50 percent.


“Let's get Lin Chia-lung elected! Let's get Lin Chia-lung elected!”

Private hire vehicle drivers chant slogans and show off cars plastered with materials supporting DPP New Taipei City mayoral candidate Lin Chia-lung. They were supporting him in gratitude for his private hire vehicle policy during his stint as transportation and communications minister. Lin has announced several transport-related policies, including a free hour of parking for taxi drivers during midday for them to eat and rest. Meanwhile, the media reported the results of an opinion poll reportedly conducted by a DPP elected official in New Taipei City's Xinzhuang District. The poll found that 49.9 percent of respondents supported KMT candidate Hou Yu-ih. Lin lagged far behind at 26.3 percent. The difference between the two candidates was 23.6 percent. When asked to comment, Lin said that although Hou is in the lead, his support has already fallen under 50 percent.

Lin Chia-lung, DPP New Taipei City Mayoral Candidate: “The results are similar to an opinion poll conducted before the election in 2014. The incumbent's support has already fallen to under 50 percent. We now have more of a chance.”

Hou Yu-ih, KMT New Taipei City Mayoral Candidate: “The most important thing for me now is doing my duties as mayor well. ”

Hou said his priority remains municipal administration. He attended an interpellation at the New Taipei City Council on Sept. 14. Some councilors complained that the city's welfare policies are inferior to those of Taipei. Hou said the budgets of the two cities can't be compared.
 

Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei City Mayor: “The overall distribution of taxes is only half (that of Taipei).”
Lo Wen-chung, New Taipei City Councilor (DPP): “Does the mayor frequently raise this issue with the central government?”
Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei City Mayor: “That's a fact!  ”

DPP councilors questioned Hou's administration and attacked him for his handling of the Nylon Cheng case during his time in the Taipei City Police Department. They claimed he chose to arrest Cheng instead of using more peaceful measures.

Lin Chia-lung, DPP New Taipei City Mayoral Candidate: “Family members have to right to know the truth about how Mayor Hou came to this decision during that time.”

Hou Yu-ih, KMT New Taipei City Mayoral Candidate: “I respect the differing opinions of everyone. I am working hard to serve the people.”

Hou didn't take the bait hurled at him by his opponent, hoping to keep the election campaign civil and focused on municipal issues.

 

 

 

「林佳龍當選! 林佳龍當選!」不但喊口號,還將自己的多元計程車貼上支持林佳龍的文宣,這些司機用行動感謝過去林佳龍在交通部長任內的多元計程車政策,林佳龍說如果當選,將會讓計程車司機,中午時段在新北市停車格免費停一小時用餐休息等等多項交通政見,想要爭取更多選民支持。

不過有媒體報導一份疑似是民進黨新莊區民代在該區所做的民調,國民黨侯友宜支持度49.9%,民進黨林佳龍只有26.3%,兩人差距23.6%。林佳龍對此表示侯友宜雖然領先,但已經下跌到支持度不到5成。

林佳龍說:「2014年的時候,其實選前的民調也是類似,所以當現任者他的支持度已經降到5成以下,那我們就更有機會。」

侯友宜表示:「民調有高有低,最重要的,我現在是市長,把事情做好。」

雖然領先,不過侯友宜還是強調市政優先的態度,14日他到新北市議會備詢,面對議員質疑新北市相關福利政策不如台北市,他回應新北市的預算無法相比。

侯友宜提到統籌分配稅款只到(台北)二分之一,民進黨新北市議員羅文崇指出:「市長常常會扯到中央統籌分配稅款。」對此,侯友宜表示:「這個是事實。」

綠營除了在議會質疑侯友宜市政,也繼續猛攻過去鄭南榕案,當時擔任台北市警察局中山分局刑事組組長侯友宜,並沒有選擇較平和的方案,而是採取激烈的拘捕方式。

林佳龍指出:「家屬有權能夠了解真相,當時這個決策,侯市長是怎麼做的。」

侯友宜回應:「我尊重所有人的不同的言論,我好好的努力為人民做事。」

面對對手相關攻擊,有現任優勢的侯友宜都低調回應,不願讓選戰步調,帶往市政以外其他議題。
