Cabinet support rates hit new low despite “successful” Olympics 

Nikkei reported on the results of the latest public opinion polls conducted over the weekend by NHK, TBS, Asahi, and Yomiuri, all of which showed that cabinet approval has dropped to a new low of around 30%. The paper noted that although some 60% of respondents said they were glad that the Tokyo Olympics were held, the international sporting event turned out not to be the “rocket booster” of public support that Prime Minister Suga and other senior GOJ officials had hoped it would be. The daily attributed the continued rise in cabinet disapproval to the public’s strong dissatisfaction with the administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
