Ganbare Japan!, you didn't lie: PM Abe cares about ruling Japan, absolutely ruling.

13 ( +16 / -3 )

It went up because Abe, like I said, was playing to the domestic audience in his responses to Kim, the recent SK & NK summit, and the announcement of the USA & NK summit.

Abe hates being out in the cold!

9 ( +11 / -2 )

Of course it went up. Everyone forgot what was going on before the Tokio incident.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

morning sickness

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Sad to see Jaosnese have such short term memory...

5 ( +8 / -3 )

The general public who voted for him: you get what you deserve.

Stay the course, PM Abe, Japan is behind you.

Is it really. So what facts and figures do you base that assertion on that contradict this:

The disapproval rate for the Abe cabinet stood at 50.3 percent, down from 52.6 percent in the previous survey.

He is the leader of a democratically elected government so....

Yes, if you call elections with winners elected by pluralities and unconstitutional vote value disparities democratic. Not that it's a whole lot better in other "democracies."

...is there somebody else that should be doing the job?

Just about anybody else with a Japanese passport.

Just about anybody else with a Japanese passport.

So no idea who should be doing the job,

Hyperbole is lost on you, isn't it.

but I just hate Abe so much that anybody else will do, even the 16 year old down the local 7 is bound to be better.

Hatred Rationality

Yep. Seeing his stupid tortoise face and his stupid teddy-boy dyed hair, reading every witless banal thing he says and every empty promise he makes, and everything I know about him fills me with abject loathing and contempt.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

By party, the LDP remained the most popular, garnering 37.1 percent of support.

Yep. That’ll do it. That’s the one that matters.

I wish people would start having more of a go at the parties who continually lose to the family business.

I can’t find it in me to have a go at the LDP now. Laziness, arrogance and complacency are natural when your ‘threats’ are generally just retreads from failed parties.

General election may be held this year.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

The latest nationwide telephone survey, conducted Saturday and Sunday, covered 745 randomly selected households with eligible voters as well as 1,157 mobile phone numbers, and obtained responses from 522 and 523 people, respectively.

Always I had negative views of abe, but after reading this poll, I will change my opinion and fully support him.

The trilateral summit helped Abe in timely manner. Ironically Abe constantly call both SK and China threats. In fact, both SK and China are great help to Japanese in general to to Abe in particular.

0 ( +5 / -5 )

With the opposition party so weak and switched off the main points of better vision to Japan and only blaming him. No one in LDP the ruling party has capability or ability to be a top-leader(?) As much there are no choices to find better resolution we citizens and taxpayers to endure those scandals of favoritism, cronyism, bureaucratic irresponsibilitiy, raising the military items to change the constitution, his Abenomics failed, etc...Only to say domestic issues. C'mon people, is this the reality of Japan today?

What kind of Abe govt is it ? 38.9%, after rate rises. How low can you go ? Absolutely no shame. Proud to be elected even with 3% vote, by western standard.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Of course, there were no issues. Those scandals were manufactured by liberal parties.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

"Those scandals were manufactured by liberal parties"...in particular, the liberal democrat party.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

But Abe was the most popular figure among respondents who support the LDP, getting 45.8 percent. Shinjiro Koizumi followed, but with 20.4 percent.

By party, the LDP remained the most popular, garnering 37.1 percent of support.

In other words the LDP and Abe will remain.

Matt Hartwell, no one is more hatred than you are against Northeast Asians. Don't say you have freedom to do so in Australia.

Huh? Crazy

Yep. Seeing his stupid tortoise face and his stupid teddy-boy dyed hair, reading every witless banal thing he says and every empty promise he makes, and everything I know about him fills me with abject loathing and contempt.

Like I said, hatred. More of a sad reflection on you than him I'm afraid.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Readers, please refrain from posting rubbish like this and post something more pertinent to the story.

Just about anybody else with a Japanese passport.

So no idea who should be doing the job, but I just hate Abe so much that anybody else will do, even the 16 year old down the local 7 is bound to be better.

The mass media want to incrimanate Abe at any cost but I think Japan needs to approve anti-spy law quickly including misuse of Japanese names by Foreign Spy!

-9 ( +2 / -11 )

PM Abe cares about ruling Japan, making it great again, booming economy and returning kidnapees, not silly poll numbers and made up scandal. Stay the course, PM Abe, Japan is behind you.
