The approval rating for Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga's Cabinet has fallen to 35.9%, the lowest level since he took office last year, a Kyodo News poll showed Sunday, adding to signs of public discontent with the government's determination to hold the Tokyo Olympics despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The disapproval rating rose to 49.8%, the highest on record for the Suga administration, which launched in September. With the Summer Games opening next Friday, more than 30% still believe the event should be canceled.
