Scottish Independence Gains Ground in Polls

  • Go Scotland!  Shove it up the Brit's asses like our American ancestors did long ago.  The Scots fought wars for centuries in order to be independent from the Imperialist English.  

The campaign for Scottish independence is gaining ground with five months to go until the referendum, according to new polls.

The gap between the two sides has narrowed, suggesting a two-point swing could be enough to secure a "yes" vote on September 18.

An ICM poll for the Scotland on Sunday newspaper shows support for independence is at 39%, while opposition has fallen four points to 42%.

Excluding people who have not yet made up their minds, the results put "yes" on 48% and "no" on 52% reports the Huffington Post.

It is the highest level of support for independence since last August, leading the Yes Scotland campaign group to claim it is "confident" of securing the necessary two-point swing.

Yes Scotland chief executive Blair Jenkins said: "The extreme negativity of the 'no' campaign is proving a major turn-off for voters, and month by month they are paying the price."

A second poll by Survation for the Sunday Post newspaper puts a "yes" vote up one point to 38% and a "no" vote down one point to 46%.

When the "don't knows" are stripped out, the results are 55-45 in favor of keeping Scotland in the UK.

The polls were published as it emerged Labour is planning to step up campaigning in Scotland.
Ed Miliband's shadow cabinet will hold a meeting in Glasgow on Friday, while MPs will campaign across the country over the week.

Meanwhile, former prime minister Gordon Brown will focus on the security of pensions as he makes the case for the union during a speech for Better Together in Glasgow.
