Support for leaving the UK has fallen to 44 per cent, according to a new YouGov poll.
The poll for The Times shows that 56 per of people on Scotland want to remain in the UK.
The findings come despite a relentless campaign from the SNP to break up the UK.
Sir John Curtice, the country’s leading polling expert, told The Times that the fall ‘appears to have happened among both those that voted Remain and those that backed Leave in the 2016 [EU] referendum’.
The poll mirrors recent studies, including one from the anti-UK Progress Scotland group, which found significant numbers of former ‘Yes’ voters now want to remain in the UK.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“This is yet another encouraging poll which shows that a majority of people in Scotland want to remain in the UK.
“As the reality of separation becomes clearer - scrapping the pound, a hard border with England and deep public spending cuts – more and more people are backing Scotland’s positive future in the UK.
“Voters are being turned off by the Nationalists’ negative inward-looking vision for Scotland.
“The best future for Scotland is as part of the UK, growing our economy, investing in public services, and preserving the bonds of solidarity with our families, friends and neighbours.”
