Replying to @writerofscratch @Nihonpolitics

Illegal might be too strong but projections are definitely not allowed out of concern they might skew the media coverage and unduly influence voter behavior. I’ve come across the effect in older (pre-1990s) newspaper & academic articles

It turns out that manga and anime otaku are very high in political awareness. 8 in 10 participants in the comic market exercised their right to vote in the 2017 general election.

I really would like to do a district by district political handicapping for the next elections in Japan like it is done in American politics (tossup, lean, solid lead); if someone got any idea how we could do it, let me know 🤗

Quoted @Nao_Maeda_Asahi

中村喜四郎さんの動きが最近、活発です。〉山崎、石破両氏は安倍晋三首相と距離を置き、中村氏は野党連携のキーマンとして打倒安倍政権を掲げている。今後の政治のあり方などについて意見を交わしたとみられる。👉山崎拓氏、反政権の中村喜四郎氏と会談 石破茂氏も同席 https://www.asahi.com/articles/ASMDC555NMDCUTFK00Z.html …

It could mean something, it could mean nothing. Yesterday, Nakamura Kishirou a key man in the Opposition had lunch together with Yamasaki Taku and Ishiba Shigeru, critics of Abe Shinzo within the LDP. #LDP #自民党 🤔

History repeats itself in Japanese economic policy, first as tragedy and then as farce. This is now the third sales tax increase that has derailed economic recovery. 

Tokyo has to give up its toxic relationship with mad ideas about debt sustainability.
