Overwhelming support for independence continues to be the “settled will of the people of Scotland” – with the 12th consecutive poll showing a majority for Independence.
The poll, conducted by Survation, shows 54 per cent would vote Yes in an independence referendum.
It also puts the SNP on 54 per cent for the constituency vote and 43 per cent for the regional list vote for the Scottish Parliament elections.
The impending disaster of Brexit and the chaos surrounding furlough support to protect Scottish businesses and jobs during Covid has also seen the Tories fall further behind the SNP.
If this was transferred into seats at next May’s Holyrood elections, the SNP would win 70 seats while the Tories would lose 12, down to 19 seats.
SNP Depute Leader, Keith Brown, said:
“After 12 straight polls we know the fundamental shift in favour of independence is the settled will of the Scottish people.
“We must have the right to decide our own future instead of being under the control of governments we don’t vote for, led by the likes of Boris Johnson.
“The Tory Westminster Government cannot be trusted to act in Scotland’s interests.
“They have removed Scotland from the EU against our will and are now, unbelievably, threatening to impose a disastrous hard Brexit in the middle of a pandemic and economic recession.
“As an independent member of the EU we will be an equal partner with our friends in the rest of the UK and Europe.
“The Westminster parties’ undemocratic attempt to deny the people of Scotland the right to choose their own future in a fresh referendum is now utterly unsustainable.”
