From YouGov on 9th July based on 139 Scots, support is:

  • Con 22%
  • Lab 19%
  • LD 5%
  • SNP 50%
  • Plaid Cymru 1%
  • Green 2%
  • Other 2%

That’s a wee bit down on the last 5 full polls, at 51% to 55%, but it is only a wee sample.

Luckily 1.39% plan to vote for Plaid Cymru in the next Holyrood election raising important questions:

  1. Is that one generously proportioned Welshman/woman or, better, two quite small ones who can both vote?
  2. Would that vote be considered wasted or kindly transferred to the SNP pile in the interests of fair play?
  3. Was that properly sampled? 22% for Carlaw? Don’t be so fnn daft!

Probably more significant and informative for us in the protected zone north of the new Covid fence, is the 46% for BJ and only 36% for Sir Keir! After all that’s happened in the last six months! Do we need any stronger hint that we should GTF out as soon as we can.
