[Editor’s Note:]

From 2000 to 2008, the DPP government twisted the word 中國(China to mean “People’s Republic of China”, and the word 中國人(Chinese to mean “citizens of the People’s Republic of China.” Consequently, in recent surveys on national identity when the question “Are you 中國人(Chinese?” was asked, some respondents may have thought they were being asked whether they considered themselves as “citizens of the People’s Republic of China,” instead of whether they considered themselves as “part of the 中華民族(Chinese nation.”

 

Global Views Magazine conducted a survey on July 21st, 2009, and asked, “Do you think you are part of the 中華民族(Chinese nation? ”

Yes

80.2%
