Since it’s election time here in Japan, let’s look at a survey from election.co.jp. Note that this is a self-selecting survey of web users, so please take all numbers with a very large pinch of salt!
Sample size: 4,518. Male 87.6%, female 12.3%
Q: Do you support the current cabinet?
I support them 39.4% I somewhat support them 11.4% Don’t know 1.2% I somewhat do not support them 5.2% I do not support them at all 42.5%
Q: Which party do you support?
No party 34.9% LDP (the previous administration) 26.0% DPJ (the opposition) 24.5% New Komeito 5.0% Communists 4.9% SDP 2.0% Liberal League 0.1%
Q: Who do you not want to hold political power?
New Komeito 37.7% Communists 22.2% DPJ 14.6% LDP 12.9% SDP 7.4% Liberal League 0.4%
I can’t really say to much about these figures, especially since they are probably extremely bogus, being self-selecting. However, there is a high percentage of anti-New Komeito respondents, but how much this is reflected in the real population, I cannot say, but I do know that there are a lot of very vocal antis out there!
