The support rate for the Cabinet of Prime Minister Taro Aso has fallen to 18.1 percent, down 1.1 percentage points from last month, according to the results of the latest Kyodo News survey released Monday.

The outcome of the telephone survey conducted Saturday and Sunday raises the possibility that Aso, who took office last September, will have an even tougher time running the government.
