It appears that the attacks by the North Korean candidate for the ROK Presidency did nothing to stop Park Geun-hye’s rise in the polls:
A KBS survey indicates that ruling Saenuri Party presidential candidate Park Geun-hye is ahead of main opposition Democratic United Party presidential candidate Moon Jae-in in terms of approval rating by a gap wider than the margin of error.
According to the survey conducted on 15-hundred adults nationwide, Park polled at 44-point-nine percent in terms of approval rating. That’s seven-and-a-half percentage points higher than Moon who scored 37-point-four percent. The gap is higher than the margin of error of plus or minus two-and-a-half percentage points.
Compared to a previous survey conducted on November 25th, Park’s approval rating went up three-point-two percentage points while Moon’s rating slipped two-and-a-half percentage points.
Regarding Tuesday’s TV debate and the three candidates that took part, around 32 percent said Park did a good job, while 17 percent selected Moon and roughly 21 percent picked minor Unified Progressive Party presidential candidate Lee Jung-hee. [KBS Global]
