Stevenson Welcomes New Poll Showing Independence Support

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a new poll by Ipsos Mori which has shown support for independence virtually tied with support for the union, with 48% of likely voters backing a Yes vote in the event of a second referendum.

The poll also found that of those who changed their mind on independence following the Brexit vote, a majority moved from No to Yes, with the overall result within the statistical polling margin of error.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“This poll shows a virtual dead heat, and is the latest to demonstrate that many No voters are reconsidering their views on independence.

“The UK that Scotland voted to remain part of in 2014 will soon no longer exist. The complete lack of planning by the UK Government for the EU referendum outcome has created tremendous uncertainty for business, for investors, for EU citizens living in the UK and for our public services and there are growing concerns over the plans of an increasingly right-wing Tory UK government.

“In that context, it is little wonder that more and more people are seeing independence as the option that offers the greatest certainty and stability.”
