"We're still a little short, without you we won't make it" -- a DPP ad appealing to people to get out and vote for it, since they are still a few votes short. It ends by exhorting people to go home and vote.
The DPP's performance in the election so far has been amazing. Let's not forget -- Ma is backed by the upper echelons of the bureaucracy, the educational system (especially at the local level), the military, and the police, as well as local factions, most local media, Big Business, Beijing, and Washington, along with local organized crime, Wall Street and international finance. The KMT is probably still the richest political party in the world, and commands vast resources to reward and punish. It is a testimony to the appeal of Tsai Ing-wen and to the incompetence of the KMT that despite all those advantages, the DPP can still win this election.
