Public support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Cabinet has risen to 45.6 percent from mid-January’s 43.4 percent, a Kyodo News survey showed Sunday, despite growing criticism of the government’s response to a labor data scandal.

The weekend telephone poll also showed that less than 10 percent of respondents expected a decades-old territorial dispute with Russia, over islands off Hokkaido, to be resolved while Abe is in office, with nearly 90 percent believing otherwise.
