Satisfaction and trust of Ma both dipped in the latest Global Views Survey Research Center poll, while dissatisfaction and distrust both rose. In its Chinese language version Global Views explained the dip in terms of the fallout from the Philippines sending 14 Taiwanese accused to China and other issues, while the English version contained no such explanation, merely presenting the numbers. In any case both versions observe that the change in Ma's ratings are within the margin of error. It should also be noted that the trend line, whatever the dip, is still generally up.
