Opinion polls show rising support for remaining in the UK

Two opinion polls have today shown rising support for remaining in the UK.


Excluding undecided voters, a YouGov poll for The Times puts support for the UK on 53% (+2).


A Savanta ComRes poll for The Scotsman puts support for the UK on 52% (+2).


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


“These latest polls confirm the recent trend of rising support for remaining in the UK, with the successful UK vaccination programme and UK-wide support for jobs and businesses reminding us that we are stronger together.


“This should send a message to the SNP to stop prioritising division ahead of the issues that really matter to people - Covid recovery, NHS and social care, and jobs.


“The SNP’s negative vision to divide Scotland is being rejected and the people of Scotland want politicians to bring our country together and build a recovery for everyone.”
