Moritomo Gakuen scandal has little impact on public assessment of Abe cabinet

Today’s Nikkei published the results of its latest public opinion survey that put support for the Abe administration at 62%, up 2 points from a month ago, and nonsupport at 30%. Three out of four were not satisfied with the explanations given at the Diet by Prime Minister Abe concerning his and his wife’s involvement in the Moritomo Gakuen scandal. The daily said the ruling LDP was pleased that the political controversy appears to be having little impact on public support for the Abe cabinet, speculating that many voters may be skeptical about the trustworthiness of the Democratic Party and other opposition parties.


Kyodo’s latest poll put support for the cabinet at 52.4%, down 3.3 points from two weeks ago, and nonsupport at 32.5%, up 1.8 points.
