Great facts! I interviewed some people in Taipei as they came out of the voting place. One woman who voted for Hau Lung-bin said she voted for him because he was handsome; another Hau Lung-bin supporter said party was a big factor. Many of the people who voted for Frank Hsieh said it was because of his achievements in Kaohsiung.
