TAIPEI -- More than 50 percent of Taiwanese expressed dissatisfaction over the island's leader's handling of relations with the Chinese mainland, a recent poll showed.

About 52 percent of the 1,068 respondents were dissatisfied with the policies of Tsai Ing-wen, the island's current leader, on cross-Taiwan Straits ties, while only about one-third approved of her performance, according to a poll conducted in mid-October by the Taiwan Public Opinion Foundation.

The share of dissatisfied respondents has outweighed that of satisfied respondents since last November.

Meanwhile, the share of respondents dissatisfied with Tsai's overall administration grew by 0.9 percentage points compared with September.

The survey also pointed out a growing crisis in confidence among Taiwanese over the current elite, including entrepreneurs, government officials and public opinion representatives, with none of them earning the approval of more than half of respondents.
