Taiwanese who support unification with China dropped to 14 percent this year from 29 percent in 2009, the United Daily News said today, citing its own poll.

Support for independence rose to 31 percent from 26 percent, while 51 percent favor maintaining the status quo, compared with 32 percent polled last year, the Taipei-based, Chinese-language newspaper said. United Daily interviewed 1,001 adults from Aug. 20 to Aug. 26 for the poll, which has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, the newspaper said.
