Nearly half of people surveyed were opposed to the revised Japan-U.S. defense cooperation guidelines announced earlier this week to give Japanese troops an expanded role beyond the country’s vicinity, a Kyodo News poll found Thursday.

While 47.9 percent said they were against the guidelines, 35.5 percent supported it, according to the telephone survey conducted on Wednesday and Thursday.
