According to the opinion polls in Taiwan, more than 80 % of the population agree that Chen is the lousiest president in Taiwan's history. Over the past seven years under Chen's regime, he has done merely nothing good to its land and people. The economy of Taiwan has come to an extremely sorry state. His corruption along with his family's scandals also led his supporting party, DPP, to a unprecedented failure over the congressman election. Some said that Chen will be the best helper for Ma, the KMT's candidate to the 2008 president election.

On the other hand, the DPP's candidate Hsieh is still facing a huge challenge, all because of Chen's rotten presidency.
