The popularity ratings of lawmakers from both the pro-democracy and pro-government camps dropped after the government's constitutional reform package was vetoed in December, a University of Hong Kong poll has found. Of the 10 legislators with the highest popularity ratings, Emily Lau Wai-hing, of The Frontier, saw the biggest drop, from 48.9 points in November to 43.3 points last month. She went from eighth most popular lawmaker to ninth. The poll of 1,011 respondents was carried out after the reform proposals were voted down by democrats on the grounds that they were undemocratic and contained no timetable for the introduction of universal suffrage. Democratic Party member Martin Lee Chu-ming remained the sixth most popular politician, but saw his rating drop from 51 points to 46.6 points. 'Long Hair' Leung Kwok-hung, who remained 10th, saw his rating drop from 35.1 points to 30.8. The popularity ratings of pro-government lawmakers also plunged. Liberal Party chairman James Tien Pei-chun's rating dropped by 4.2 points, to 51.3 points. Legco President Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai, who remained the most popular lawmaker, saw her rating drop 3.1 points to 62. Robert Chung Ting-yiu, director of the university's Public Opinion Programme, blamed the decline on the dispute over the constitutional reform saga.
