A Poll Indicates That Up To 56% Of People Support Scottish Independence

According to a poll, support for Scottish independence has risen to 56%.
Following the Supreme Court’s decision that the Scottish Parliament cannot pass laws allowing for an independence referendum, according to a poll conducted by Ipsos Scotland for STV of 1,065 Scots, support for independence is now at an all-time high.

Voters who were likely to cast ballots stated they would support independence in a referendum in 56% of cases, while 44% said they would vote against it.

When asked when they would prefer to see a vote on separation, 35% answered before the end of the year, 26% said they would never want another referendum, 17% said between 2024 and 2026, and the same percentage said after 2026.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon declared her party would contest the subsequent general election as a de facto referendum on independence after the decision.

According to the poll, the SNP would receive 53% of the vote if the election were treated as a referendum, while the Scottish Greens would receive 2% of the vote among those who were most likely to vote, meeting the criteria established by the First Minister for the start of negotiations on Scotland’s separation from the union.

However, when asked what the biggest problems were in Scotland today, 41% of respondents named the NHS, up from 27% in the May 2022 Ipsos Scotland poll. The NHS was then cited as the biggest problem by 28% of respondents, followed by the cost of living and education, both at 23%.

Fourth place went to Scottish independence at 23%, up from 17% in the previous poll.

The poll also examined Scottish voters’ satisfaction with party leaders.

The Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar was rated +3 after the First Minister, who received a net satisfaction score of +9.

Lib Dem Alex Cole-Hamilton had a net rating of -16, while Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross had a rating of -38.

Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater, co-leaders of the Scottish Green Party and ministers in the Scottish Government, each had a net rating of +1 and +2, respectively.

Keith Brown, deputy leader of the SNP, claimed that the pro-independence movement was “rocketing” and that the poll results indicated a “clear majority” in favor of the move.

He declared that “Tories and Labour have contended for far too long that the time is not right for the people of Scotland to decide for themselves.”
“This poll clearly demonstrates that the public believes that the moment is now; the Westminster parties need to acknowledge and respect that.”

“It’s no wonder that support for independence is still growing as the anarchy of Westminster power wrecks irreparable harm on Scotland, as caused by successive Tory governments that we didn’t vote for.

“Independence is the only way we can permanently get rid of Tory Westminster regimes, and it is the only way to protect Scotland.”

No politician from Westminster can obstruct the Scottish people. We must opt for an independent future in order to avoid the harm caused by Brexit, which both Labour and the Tories support, and to shield Scotland from Westminster governments that Scotland does not support.
