Sunday’s Yomiuri took up the results of a nationwide mail-in poll taken from August through September regarding the upcoming general election. Some 64% expressed hope that the LDP and its junior ruling partner will continue to lead the government, while only 30% wanted the opposition bloc to take the helm. Some 55% of unaffiliated voters, who are believed to hold the key to the election outcome, said they wanted the ruling coalition to emerge as the victor, while 37% voiced hope for a change of government. Respondents reportedly projected that the coronavirus pandemic, social security, and economy will be the key campaign issues in the national election.
