Voting result breakdown by county

Legislative breakdown: Apple Daily is reporting the KMT wins 64 seats, a majority; the DPP 40 seats, the PFP and TSU 3 seats each, and nonpartisans or NPSU candidates winning 3 seats. This is a relative loss of 17 seats for the KMT and an increase of 13 for the DPP. 

On the presidential side, note the relative balance of areas where a party wins more than say, 55% of the vote.  The DPP is not really all that dominant even in most places it wins.

No matter how you chalk up the numbers, Taiwan needed Tsai and the DPP to win this election.

They didn't.

And now the final nail in the coffin has been hammered in place.

It's not hard to understand. Enough people didn't see a danger in voting the KMT in again.

In four years they'll know if they were sensible, stupid or simply lucky.

I don't think we'll have to wait 4 years.

Wow. Someone using the handle "STOP Ma" thinks returning Ma was a bad idea. Who saw that one coming?
