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.Share this to your,
