Round up 8/3

The DPP has done a good job marketing the referendum for the ECFA, with most people across party lines supporting a referendum, and few people know what the ECFA would consittute, according to Taiwan Thinktank's latest survey.

More than 90 percent of people do not know what the economic cooperation framework agreement (ECFA) that the government intends to sign with China is, a poll conducted by Taiwan Thinktank showed.

The poll also suggested that more than 60 percent of respondents supported the holding of a referendum on the cross-strait agreement....

The poll was conducted at the end of last month, with 1,085 valid samples collected randomly nationwide. The think tank is generally regarded as leaning toward the pan-green camp.
Secondly, Taiwan killed China 13:1 with amatuers in the Asian Baseball Championships, after having beaten Korea 5:4 and just losing to Japan 6:5

And finally, the latest update to the map is done, reflecting recent nomination news for the 2009 County Magistrate/mayoral elections. The KMT is more or less finished nominating, needing only to pick a candidate in the Matsu islands and verify the Pingtung candidate. I find it interesting they're going after both Kinmen and Matsu, the only remaining enclaves of non-absorbed PFP and New Party officials. Meanwhile, the DPP will likely need to finalize candidates in Taoyuan, Miaoli, and Hualien soon; I imagine they'll leave Kinmen and Matsu to the pan-blues.
