Further poll confirms solidity of Yes-supporting base at more than 40% and so well-placed to surge after campaigning begins and with support for EU membership looking stronger as factor in winning

Yesterday’s Panelbase poll in the Sunday Times puts support for Independence at 43%. Survation on Friday had it at 46%. The September 11th Panelbase poll had it at 40%. I take confidence from these three polls saying roughly the same thing and confirming a solid base of 40% plus going into any campaign. Given the scope for further improvements in the Scottish economy, reported repeatedly here, the lack of a coherent rationale or leadership for any No campaign plus the recent news that EU settlers will get a vote and I feel good about the outcome.

There has been some disagreement as to whether the SNP’s strong support for EU membership is a winning card or not. This poll puts support for up from 61% to 65% with only 26% thinking Brexit will leave the Scottish economy stronger, so I’d use it.

Finally, only 32% were opposed to seeking re-admission to the EU with 48% for and 20% undecided. Assuming at least half the undecided choose re-admission, this too seems to suggest the SNP position is the correct one.

    To those who would support EU readmission, there is only one way that could happen.
