Scots independence support at highest level: Poll
Fri Mar 21, 2014 1:2PM GMT

Support for Scottish independence from the UK is at its highest level since last summer, a new poll has shown.

The poll, conducted by Panelbase for Newsnet Scotland, suggested on Thursday that support for Scotland to leave the UK stands at 40 percent, the highest since August last year.

It also showed that 45 percent of those questioned intended to vote against independence in the upcoming referendum, a decline of 2 points from the equivalent survey last month.

Fifteen percent of Scots are still over the fence, according to the poll.

Scotland’s Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hailed the results of the poll saying, “This is another remarkable poll which shows increasing support for a Yes vote in September.”

Chief executive of Yes Campaign Blair Jenkins also described the results of the poll as “extremely encouraging.”

This latest rise in Scottish people opting out of the UK comes after the British Chancellor George Osborne, who is backed by the opposition at Westminster, announced last month that Scotland could not use the pound in case of independence.

The Scottish government, however, described the warning as part of attempts to bully Scotland to withdraw its independence bid.

The independence referendum is due to be held on September 18, when Scots will decide on whether they should break away from, or stay with, the UK after more than 300 years of political union.
