Cabinet support increases 4 points to 46%

Monday’s Nikkei front-paged the results of its nationwide opinion survey conducted on Aug. 25-27. Support for the Abe cabinet has recovered to 46%, up 4 points from a survey earlier this month, and nonsupport declined 3 points to 46%. The paper wrote that despite an improvement in cabinet support, independent voters and women remain dissatisfied, with only 19% of non-affiliated voters and 40% of women approving of the cabinet, while the rate of approval among men rose 5 points to 51%. When asked whether they would like Prime Minister Abe to win a third term as the LDP president in the LDP leadership race in September 2018, 40% said yes but 52% said no.
