for bookies in Taiwan, which candidate do they prefer? (as in which one's victory/defeat will maximize their profits?)

Disclaimer: AFAIK, it is still illegal(or frowned upon?) to bet on such things in Taiwan.... :)

Betting is controlled by gangsters, and gangsters are kept in check by the KMT ... so, who do you think they prefer? :ponder:
