(c) GETTY: Look, up there, it’s Tony!
A sub-poll of 90 Scots, for Deltapoll and the Mail on Sunday, with fieldwork on 21st to 23rd February 2019, found SNP support steady at 41% and seems to reinforce four previous sub-polls giving them between 40 and 44%:
Lib Dems 5%
But, but, but, when they asked this question:
look what happens:
Lib Dems 2%
While the new Independence Group gets 9% and the Tories climb to 29%, the SNP reach a figure, 45%, which in a first-part-the-post system with the opposition further split like this, would enable them to almost wipe-out the opposition.
Also, look at the Lib Dem vote as half of them appear to have been drawn away from Willie, to Chuku and Chums. I know, tiny sample, but if anything like this happened more widely, they’d be in real trouble. In the Northern Isles, the already compromised Carruthers, would be out.
