Nose-Holders: U.S Voters Disgusted by Both Candidates

2016 - 11 - 01

The president election is just around the corner. Only until last week, the poll hadn’t been in Donald Trump’s favor, largely because of his lewd comments on woman 11 years ago.


美國大選將至,本來因為11年前對女性的不堪言論,川普民調大跌,敗象已露。但在上週五,情勢丕變,FBI局長Comey宣布發現另一批電郵,可能和希拉蕊之前電郵案有關,需要重啟調查。

華盛頓郵報與ABC新聞網10月27號到30號的最新民調顯示,在打算投票的選民中,川普還領先希拉蕊一個百分點。
這個美國選舉的「十月大驚奇」,不但跌破大家眼鏡,更是為本次選舉帶來更多變數。

捏著鼻子投票

Nearly 6 in 10 registered voters have an unfavorable impression of Clinton (59 percent), and an identical percentage see Trump negatively. Nearly half of registered voters, 47 percent, have a “strongly unfavorable” view of Clinton and Trump alike.

根據同一份民調顯示:接近六成已註冊選民,對希拉蕊觀感不佳。川普的比例呢?剛好一樣。兩黨候選人被選民痛恨的程度,不但史無前例,也是難分高下。

In a campaign in which a historic number of voters is disgusted at both candidates, the disclosure(按:指電郵案重啟調查) may just increase the number of what analysts in both parties have come to refer to as “nose holders”: People who will hold their nose and vote, if they vote at all.

一個口無遮攔、充滿對女性與少數族裔不堪言論;另一位高高在上、滿肚心機的形象深植人心。惡男醜女,一樣令人作嘔,選民如果要投票,也是捏著鼻子投吧。

Lack of Effectiveness of Internal Controls Evaluation

According to the “Code of Internal Controls Implementation for Securities and Options Services”, each securities services shall implement procedures and methods to review its workflow. 依據金管會證期局針對證券事業頒布之「證券暨期貨市場各服務事業建立內部控制制度處理準則」之規定1,各證券服務事業必須在內部控制制度當中制定自行檢查作業之程序及方法,並督促其內部單位每半年辦理自行檢查一次,自行檢查之結果則可以作為日後出具內部控制聲明書之根據。 法規的立意良善,但是證券業實務工作者執行內部控制制度自行檢查作業多年的心得指出2,所謂的自行檢查作業僅僅是各單位將前一年自行檢查工作的電子檔加上當年度內控制度新增訂部份,由稽核單位主導,其他單位配合演出,耗費大量人力物力卻無助實質內控效益的戲碼,充其量就是各單位人員剪貼製作的精美書面報告而已。 1. 參「證券暨期貨市場各服務事業建立內部控制制度處理準則」第20、21條。 2. 參鄭明裕,證券商內部控制制度相關法規與實務執行效益之探討,證券櫃檯雙月刊,97年4月號,54頁。
