Abe regains support on pivot to economy

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

TOKYO -- The approval rating of the cabinet of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe recovered to 49% thanks to a renewed focus on the economy, a Nikkei Inc./TV Tokyo poll showed.

     The result, an 8-percentage-point improvement from late October, marked a return to approval levels last seen around May and June, before conflict escalated between the ruling and opposition parties over controversial security legislation. The disapproval rating declined 6 points to 36%.
