    Poll finds Taiwan identity at record high (2021/01/13)

    A Taiwan Thinktank poll has found that a record 87% of respondents consider themselves Taiwanese, while 8% think of themselves as Chinese. That's when respondents were asked to identify as one or the other. Now when given the third option of identifying as both, about 32% did so, while 64% identified as Taiwanese only. Just 2% of respondents said they considered themselves exclusively Chinese.

    The trend in Taiwan is that now, those who identify as Chinese only make up just 2% of the population.

    The Taiwan Think Tank has released its latest survey on national identity in Taiwan. Sixty-four percent of respondents identified as "Taiwanese only," versus 2.1% who considered themselves "Chinese only." Meanwhile, 31.8% identified as both Taiwanese and Chinese. When given only two options, 86.8% chose Taiwanese and 8.2% picked Chinese, a staggering gap.

    In his time, former President Lee Teng-hui promoted reforms for liberalization and democratization that had some shortcomings. I hope that through a second wave of democratic reform - one at the local level - there can be more direct participation, to make up for the areas in which the first round of reform fell short.

    A pivotal figure in Taiwan's transition from authoritarianism to democracy was former President Lee Teng-hui. According to the survey, more than 75% approve of Lee's contributions to freedom of speech and his Taiwanization policies. When asked whether Lee deserved his title of "Mr. Democracy," 76.1% responded in the affirmative. Another 70.9% of respondents say they support further constitutional reform.

    When evaluating Lee Teng-hui, 83% said they approved of Lee's democratic reforms and 76% approved his push for democratization. We have a shared collective memory. I think that for a political community, that is very important. It's also a good thing.

    Lee passed away last year, but his legacy continues as one of Taiwan's earliest advocates for a free democracy.

    " (李前總統)他當時所推動的一些,自由化民主化的改革,有所不足的地方,希望透過二次民主改革,也就是在地方政治,如何做一個更直接的參與,來彌補一次改革所不足的地方。"
