I posted over the weekend on the Yomiuri poll, here: Yomiuri poll shows support for Japan PM Abe’s government slumped

More now, from the Nikkei, reporting that Abe’s cabinet’s approval rating has dropped to 48%, down 5 percentage points from late last month

  • “Two-thirds said Abe bears responsibility for the fact that Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry chief Yuko Obuchi and Justice Minister Midori Matsushima resigned under a cloud this month.”

Harsh judgement from respondents to the poll!
