Election 2005


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 them39.4%
I somewhat support them11.4%
Don’t know1.2%
I somewhat do not support them5.2%
I do not support them at all42.5%

Q: Which party do you support?

No party34.9%
LDP (the previous administration)26.0%
DPJ (the opposition)24.5%
New Komeito5.0%
Liberal League0.1%

Q: Who do you not want to hold political power?

New Komeito37.7%
Liberal League0.4%

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!
