The Japanese government’s ratings have fallen to a record low.

The rating of the Japanese government fell to a record low of 29.1%, falling by 10.5% compared to the previous survey. According to a survey, such data is provided by the news service of the Japanese television company TBS.

According to polls conducted so far, this is not only the lowest level in Kishida’s two-year tenure as prime minister, but also in the entire 11 years since Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party managed to regain power after 4 years. years of Democratic Party rule.

The lowest figure in the 8 years of Shinzo Abe’s premiership was a rating of 35.4% in August 2020 against the backdrop of weak government measures during the pandemic and his successor and Kishida’s predecessor in this post, Yoshihide Suga – 32.6% in August 2021. In both cases, this led to both politicians leaving the post of head of government amid the unpopularity of the cabinet.

Only ex-Prime Minister Taro Aso, who is now Kishida’s deputy in the party, had support below the current level – 23.9% in December 2008. Against the backdrop of these ratings, the LDP lost the elections and a historic change of power occurred: the Democratic Party of Japan formed the cabinet. The second example of a rating below 30% belongs to the last Democratic Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda – 25.2% in November 2012, which also led to a change of power, this time from the Democrats back to the LDP under the leadership of Shinzo Abe.

68.4% do not trust the government, which is also a record.


The survey was conducted on November 4 and 5 using random computer sampling by telephone among 1,213 people over 18 years of age. The error is not indicated.
