Majority of Scots support independence from UK - YouGov poll

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is this the same poll that's mentioned in the op, if so the wording is so heavily weighted by asking "should Scotland be an independant country" when a more fair way of asking would be for example 'what would you vote for in Scots indy' as shown shown.

Still too close for Mrs Sturgeon I'm afraid and she knows that if she loses another referendum it would be toast for her, and she would lose all the adoration usually reserved for royalty.

If I recall correctly, that was the wording used in 2014. It seems reasonable, does it not, to aim for consistency? 

 

Worth bearing in mind that while it is, indeed, tight at present, we haven't even had a single day of campaigning yet. Last time round, the Yes campaign started around 27% or so and got up to 45% by polling day. While much of the low hanging fruit is obviously still in the basket, the soft Nos are getting softer by the day, with nothing seemingly on the horizon from London to strengthen their Union resolve. 

All you are proving is that it was weighted the time of the first indy then.

Surely not.

52% v 48% was an overwhelming majority in the case of Brexit. Will of the people. Democracy. The people will have spoken.

 

Oh agreed, the die has been cast so there will be no cries of the need for a supermajority or any of those shenanigans played by Labour in '79.
