Public support for the Noda Cabinet has plunged to 18 percent, the lowest level since the administration came to power in September 2011.

The Asahi newspaper survey shows that the disapproval rate rose to 59 percent, another record. The two main opposition forces, the Liberal Democratic Party and New Komeito, have been pressing the ruling Democratic Party of Japan to dissolve the Lower House for a snap election by the end of the year.

According to the survey, 49 percent of respondents say the election should be held before year’s end, compared with 35 percent who feel it can be delayed until next year. Only 11 percent support the DPJ, while 26 percent support the LDP, the highest figure since the LDP lost power in 2009.
