Cabinet approval declines sharply

Today’s Asahi front-paged the results of its latest public opinion survey that put support for the Abe administration at 33%, down eight points from a month ago, and nonsupport at 47%, up six points. Some 64% voiced opposition to the controversial bill aimed at raising the mandatory retirement age for public prosecutors, while 15% were in favor of it. Only three out of ten felt Prime Minister Abe has exercised leadership in combating the coronavirus, while 57% felt otherwise. Slightly over half of respondents approved of Abe’s decision to end the state of emergency for 39 prefectures.
