A new poll from YouGov has revealed that only 34 per cent of people in Scotland support Nicola Sturgeon’s plan for another divisive Scexit referendum this year.
The findings also show that just 34 per cent of voters think Scotland would be better off by leaving the UK.
However, the overall result shows that 10 per cent of voters are undecided on separation, demonstrating the need to continue the positive campaign for remaining in the UK.
Excluding ‘don’t knows’, the split is 51/49.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“This poll proves that Nicola Sturgeon is not speaking for the majority of people in Scotland when she demands a divisive second independence referendum this year. She should stop trying to divide Scotland and focus on fixing the public services her government has run into the ground.
“Since July 2016 there have been more than 60 polls, and this is only the third finding narrow support for breaking up the UK.
“With one-in-ten Scots undecided, it’s a stark reminder that we must make the positive case for remaining in the UK every day, ensuring we build a positive future based on shared economic prosperity and solidarity.” Source: YouGov
