More on the pre-election polls
ESWN collects a lot of information on the Taiwan pre-election polls.
Meanwhile, the gambling syndicates had Huang Jun-yin favored by between 10,000 to 20,000 votes until Friday afternoon, when it suddenly switched to even odds. The actual outcome was that Huang Jun-yin lost by 1,114. (TVBS) However most of the NT$5 billion bets (for both Taipei and Kaohsiung) had already been placed at the 15,000-20,000 handicap in Kaohsiung. So what happens is that a lot of the gambling syndicate heads have "left town" because they could not cover the bets.
