75% Of Japanese Rap Hereditary Succession

Seventy-five percent of respondents in a recent nationwide opinion poll said that hereditary succession of politicians in Japan is "problematic," though a lower proportion reported concern about the issue when voting, Daisuke Nohara reported for Mainichi Shimbun.

In the July 2 poll conducted by the Social Survey Research Center (SSRC), 9% of respondents did not see political nepotism as a problem, far fewer than those who took issue with it.


Fifteen percent said they "don't know" whether it's a problem. When asked if they were concerned about a candidate's political family background when voting, respondents were fairly evenly divided, with 46% answering "Yes" and 43% "No."



The results highlight a gap between awareness of the issue and actual voting decisions.

The survey was conducted online employing the "d-Survey" method targeting smartphones, with valid responses received from 1,501 people.


The d-Survey method allows random sampling of about 65 million people aged 18 and older nationwide, using a questionnaire service targeting mobile carrier NTT Docomo Inc.'s "d Point Club" members. The research center has been conducting public opinion polls using this method since last October.
