No, that was the SECOND sub-poll to show an SNP surge over 50%


I forgot to check thoroughly, this previous poll by Opinium for the Observer, 13th to 15th March, with 110 adults, online and with The Independent Group included, giving:

Conservatives              25

Labour                         8

TIG                               4

Lib Dems                     4

UKIP                             6

SNP                              51

Green                          2

Look at the size of Labour as the Yoons circle the wagons in Jackson Carlaw’s forecourt. You don’t, however, get the SNP surge if you exclude TIG. Then you get only 44% support for SNP. Why is that? Labour Indy-supporters give up the ghost as TIG threatens to finish them off?

So, maybe a bit more optimism allowed than I thought earlier this evening?

    Wow… maybe finally the turning towards Independence is starting to flow.

    It might just be a straw in the wind or the product of sincere and understandable annoyance at Mrs May’s ridiculous speech the previous evening, but a friend who has been a pretty solid Labour supporter and thoughtful opponent of independence announced that Brexit was turning out to be such a bourach that he would vote for independence.

      We need to cultivate this sort of Scot and convince them even further. Onwards and upwards!
