Scotland to vote from United Kingdom for independence

Scottish voters would vote for independence from the United Kingdom, as per the poll by Michael Ashcroft, the first major published survey to exhibit a lead for independence since March 2017.

Being inspected that how they would vote in an independence referendum, out of 1,019 surveyed voters 46% of the voters said that they would vote for independence and 43% versus. Excluding those who said they did not know or would not vote, this amounted to a lead of 52% to 48% for an independent Scotland.

Ashcroft a Conservative who opposed Johnson’s leadership said that in the wake of [Prime Minister] Boris Johnson’s visit to Edinburgh last week he polled Scots to measure support for a second independence referendum and to gauge opinion on independence itself.

He added that he found a small majority in favour of a new vote – and the first lead for an independent Scotland for more than two years.

Scots declined independence by 55 to 45 percent in a 2014 referendum but differences over Brexit have constrained relationship with the government in London.

The 52-48 vote to leave the EU in a 2016 referendum strained bonds among the constituent parts of the United Kingdom: while Wales and England vote to leave, Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay.

The Scottish National Party (SNP), which drives the devolved government in Edinburgh, says that a second independence referendum is justified as Scotland is now being pulled out of the alliance against its will.
