Next step in the primaries

The DPP will be taking their opinion polls between May 11 and June 17. For districted members, the opinion poll will count for 70% of their nomination while the party member vote counted 30%; for at large members, the breakdown is 60% / 40%.

The KMT, almost miraculously, only has one district where two legislators are interested. (No wonder I couldn't find a list of how their legislators registered for nominations! They must have done a lot of backroom dealing first to get to this point so early in the game.) Their opinion poll will be taken between May 16 and May 18.

I'll note some DPP people, including Hsieh himself, have talked about making a legislative majority their goal for '07. I think that's a very dangerous goal they will almost necessarily disappoint themselves. :(
