Scottish Referendum: No Vote’s Lead Narrows

The No vote’s lead ahead of the Scottish Referendum has narrowed to just six points, according to a new poll.

The YouGov poll suggests support for Scottish independence has risen eight points over the past month.

The six-point lead for the No camp is down from 14 points in mid-August, and 22 points from early last month, excluding undecided voters.

The poll found that 53% of those questioned planned to vote No, while 47% would back Yes.

Blair Jenkins, chief executive of Yes Scotland, said the poll showed the Yes campaign has gained momentum.

“This breakthrough poll shows that Yes has the big momentum – it’s an all-time high for Yes support in a YouGov survey so far, and an eight-point swing from No to Yes in just three weeks.

“We only need another three-point swing to achieve a Yes for Scotland on September 18.”

The latest poll for The Sun and The Times questioned 1,063 respondents between August 28 and September 1.

Better Together Campaign Director Blair McDougall said: “We need the silent majority who back a No vote to do their bit.

“Whether it’s voting on the day, knocking on doors, making phone calls or speaking to friends and family, the silent majority should feel confident in speaking up.

“We will not be complacent for one second and will do everything we can to secure the brightest future for Scotland within the UK.

“The nationalists talk as if they are winning, but the truth is this is yet another poll showing the campaign for Scotland to stay in the UK in the lead.

“We speak for the majority of Scots, but this poll confirms that if people want Scotland to stay in the UK then they need to vote for it.”
