At 36.9 percent, backing for Abe's LDP dwarfed the 5.1 percent who supported the main opposition Democratic Party, but 42.4 percent supported no particular party.
A survey by the NHK public broadcaster released on Monday put support for Abe's cabinet at 52 percent, down four points from a May poll. Forty one percent were undecided about collective self defence, while those in favour and those opposed accounted for 26 percent each.
Political experts said, however, that chatter about a snap election was more likely a tactic aimed at getting the New Komeito to compromise.
