House of Councillors Election 2010 - Panic Time?

The latest figures from Kyodo on which parties the voters will be casting their ballots for in the proportional half of the vote on Sunday.


* = "Gosh, I Don't Know"
Where is the collapse over the last 10 days? Where is the dramatic shift away from the DPJ? Where is the calamity? Where is the surge for Your Party?

Gosh, I don't know.

On the other hand, I also do not know whether either the SDP or Sunrise or neither of them will manage to clear the 2.2% a party needs to claim a seat -- which can be seen as good news for the DPJ, for it is next in line to get a seat should either of the micro-parties fail to meet the threshold.

A bit off topic, but: is it apropos to congratulate you for a new job? Or have I misunderstood your change in affiliation?

Looks like you were full of S@#%. The DPJ lost seats, the Your party had an impressive showing (in spite of its size), and the LDP managed to gain seats thereby preventing the DPJ from having control over the upper house.

Whenever I want to read bullc#$%, I always make sure to go to your website. Your predictions and ideas concerning the Japanese government have never actually panned out.
