Poll suggests introducing Independent Group into Scottish politics could push SNP back to full dominance at Westminster

(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%:

Conservatives  26%

Labour             26%

Lib Dems         5%

SNP                  41%

But, but, but, when they asked this question:

look what happens:

Conservatives  29%

Labour             13%

Lib Dems         2%

SNP                  45%

TIG                   9%

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.

      Oh no, I’d hoped the 2024 ‘Glenrothes’ referendum on Scotland joining the revived Viking Empire would be as fair as Harald the Fair.
