NEW POLL: Support for leaving UK falls to just 37%

Half of respondents to a new poll by YouGov for the PA news agency have said they believe Humza Yousaf is doing a bad job as First Minister, while support for leaving the UK has fallen to just 37%.

Backing for separation was down from 39% in April, while support for remaining part of the UK rose to 46%.

This new poll matches the lowest level of support for leaving the UK found by YouGov since the referendum in 2014.

The YouGov poll involved 1,100 Scots between June 26 and 29.

Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:

“Poll after poll shows that most people in Scotland want to remain part of the UK and recognise that we are stronger together.

“Given the numbers who think Humza Yousaf is doing a bad job, he should drop his obsession with his negative campaign to divide us and focus on what really matters to people – fixing the NHS, driving up education standards, delivering economic growth and tackling the climate emergency.

“It’s time for the people’s priorities, not the SNP’s.”
