SNP Poll Boost as Labour and Tories on the Slide

The SNP has received a boost in the polls, while support for Labour and the Tories continues to ebb away.

On Westminster voting intentions, the SNP commands an 18-point lead over the Tories, with Labour trailing even further behind. If applied to a General Election these figures would give the SNP 13 more MPs than at present with the Tories losing 7 seats and Labour 6.

The findings from Survation published in a national newspaper chime with other recent polls showing Labour’s boasts of a resurgence have failed to materialise, as they lose support on both the constituency and regional vote for Holyrood. Meanwhile support for the SNP holds strong – with a 19-point lead over the Tories on constituency voting intentions, with Labour trailing by 22.

These figures follow recent polling showing support for independence remains at historically high levels.

Commenting, Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“The SNP is driving Scotland forward, delivering the best public services anywhere in the UK and building a fairer country.

“Our ambition for Scotland could not be further at odds with the despair and chaos from the Tories. That’s why they’ve slumped, while support for the SNP continues to grow.

“And what’s clear is that fewer and fewer people think Labour are a serious alternative. They’ve got no credibility on the big issues we face as a country and their support is disappearing at a rate of knots.

“We never have, and never will, take our support for granted. We’ll continue to raise our sights after 11 years in government and keep fighting Scotland’s corner at Westminster, unlike the Tories.”
