Young generation more amenable to fourth term for Abe

Referring to the results of its recent opinion survey, Nikkei reported its finding that support for the idea of Prime Minister Abe serving an additional term as LDP president and remaining prime minister was strongest among the young generation. The paper wrote that although 35% of the respondents overall were in favor and 54% were against the idea of Abe serving a fourth term, 53% of respondents aged between 18 and 39 supported it, while 31% did not. Pointing out that surveys conducted by other outlets have shown similar trends, the paper speculated that the LDP is developing an election strategy with the young generation in mind, including measures to engage in online debate, for the Upper House race in the summer.
