Though the Scotsman reads the YouGov sub-poll results quite favourably for the Lib Dems, I find it hard to agree. I know they will probably hang on to their Northern fastness but across the country, they look weak, stuck at 11% from the previous one for 9-10 September. Surely Swinson will fall.
Based on a sub-sample of 173 Scots adults with fieldwork on 19-20 September, they suggest
- Con 21%
- Lab 11%
- LD 11%
- SNP 45%
- Brexit 7%
- Green 4%
It’s only in one region, ‘Rest of South’ that the Lib Dems lead Labour.
As for the SNP this is the 20th YouGov poll, this year, putting them above 40% and on track to sweep the boards.
