Exit polls show Japan's LDP gaining the big victory expected of it, garnering maybe 310 seats (out of 480 total) in the country's lower house of parliament. The win returns Shinzo Abe to the PM's role 5 years after he lost the job. Abe ran promising to goad the BOJ into far easier monetary policy, and stocks (up) and the yen (down) have responded over the past weeks.
