Yoon Seok-youl recently topped a public opinion survey of potential presidential candidates for the first time, garnering more support than the Democratic Party of Korea (DPK) Chairman Lee Nak-yon and Gyeonggi Governor Lee Jae-myung, according to local pollster Hangil Research.
Chairman Lee and Governor Lee, both from the ruling party, had been very close in previous polls when Yoon had been far behind, but support for Yoon has been increasing in recent weeks. According to the Hangil Research survey of 1,022 adults, 24.7 percent said they supported Yoon, who was followed by Chairman Lee at 22.2 percent and Governor Lee at 18.4 percent.
The pollster said Yoon’s popularity was especially high among supporters of the People Power Party (PPP). Yoon’s rising popularity, however, is not being welcomed by either of the main two parties.
