Fuji TV reported at noon that it has resumed conducting its monthly joint opinion poll with Sankei Shimbun, eight months after it suspended the survey following the finding that the survey answers included data fabricated by a contractor. The network said the opinion poll conducted over the weekend found that public support for the Suga Cabinet was 52.3%, while the public disapproval rating was 45.0%. On the Suga administration’s measures against COVID-19, 65.6% expressed disapproval, while 33.6% expressed support. The network said even among those who expressed support for the Suga Cabinet, 43.0% expressed disapproval over the COVID-19 measures, while 56.4% expressed approval. The network said 77.9% said they have high expectations for Administrative Reform Minister Kono, who was tapped by Suga to be in charge of COVID-19 vaccinations, adding that public expectations for the vaccines and Minister Kono contributed to the relatively strong support for the Cabinet. The network noted, however, that 29% of respondents said they will not get vaccinated, pointing out that many people are apparently concerned about the side effects and safety of the vaccines.
