The popularity rating of Prime Minister Fukuda's Cabinet seems to depend on who polled this time, after the new antiterrorism bill was passed throught the Diet last Friday. The Japan Times (see the link above) reports the Kyodo News poll that public support for the Cabinet jumped 6.1 points to 41.4% from last month, although the Cabinet's disapproval rating of 42.8% still exceeded its approval rating. On the other hand, Nikkei Newspaper's poll (see the link above) showed 1 point decline in the Cabinet's approval rating to 42% with the same disapproval rating of 46% this time, compared to last month. This means that the passage of the antiterrorism bill does not seem to have affected the overall popularity rating for the Fukuda Cabinet. According to Asahi Newspaper's poll (see the link above), however, there seems to be a slight increase in the Cabinet's approval rating to 34%, which is still very low, relative to the disapproval rating of 45%.
