Japan Political Pulse data used in Vox article

September 29, 2017

Sasakawa USA’s Japan Political Pulse, a project by Fellow for Economy, Trade and Business Tobias Harris that aggregates major opinion polls conducted by Japanese media outlets, was utilized in a September 28 article on Vox about the stakes of the upcoming October 22 snap election recently called by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The article points to JPP’s moving average, which shows Abe’s standings in public opinion polls move from a historical high to one of 60 percent disapproval in the midst of influence-peddling scandals, and back to about 48 percent approval since August. JPP aims to provide a more accurate picture of the Abe government’s public approval rating by aggregating multiple major opinion polls conducted in Japan. Harris also provides regular analysis on noteworthy data points in recent surveys.
