The formidable challenge facing Taiwan's first female president | The Economist

IT WAS a landslide that will change Taiwanese politics and could affect China, too... Ms Tsai won 56% of the vote, becoming the island’s first female leader. More striking still, in elections held on the same day to the parliament, called the Legislative Yuan, her party won 68 of the 113 seats up for grabs, compared with only 35 for the ruling Kuomintang (KMT; see graphic). It is the first time since Chiang Kai-shek fled to Taiwan in 1949 that the KMT and its allies have lost their grip on parliament. It plunges relations with China into doubt: the mainland has not ruled out the use of force to retake the 23m-strong island should it ever declare independence.

Hillary Clinton’s national lead is slipping faster in 2016 than it did in 2008 - The Washington Post

If we compare where Clinton is now in the Real Clear Politics polling average, the 2016 picture and the 2008 picture aren't really all that similar. Nationally, she was doing much better in 2008 than she is right now, perhaps in part because the anti-Clinton vote in 2008 was still split between two people -- Barack Obama and John Edwards -- instead of just one. But that recent trend line, a function of two new national polls that were close after a bit of a lull, is not very good news.
