Marginalia on Japanese politics and society
LDP got 24.07% of the party list vote. Based on what I know this is the worst result of the LDP in a party list vote ever. It is even worse than the 2009 elections. Of course, the Sunrise Party, and New Renaissance all took votes away from the LDP which did not exist in 2009. Also Your Party took more LDP votes than it did in 2009.
Is it a given that Your Party only takes votes from LDP?The feeling I had was that they stole some "seiken koutai" thunder from last year, and their success yesterday mostly came at the expense of the DPJ.
