I’ve written twice already on this outlier poll conducted by an Italian pollster, new to the scene here and advised only by two Tory activists.
You can read about it at:
In the Record on the 1st July:
A new independence poll has found the majority of Scots are against breaking up the union.
When ‘don’t know’ answers are included the poll found that 39 per cent of people would vote ‘Yes’ in any future referendum, while 46 per cent said they would opt for ‘No’.
With don’t knows excluded the results are close to the 2014 independence referendum with 46 per cent saying ‘Yes’ and 54 per cent saying ‘No’
It comes a day after a Scotsman poll conducted by Savanta ComRes found that 53 per cent of people said a referendum should not take place next year with 40 per cent said it should, and the remainder were undecided.
Asked about their voting intentions, when don’t knows were removed, 49 per cent said they would vote Yes, while 51 per cent said they would vote No.https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/politics/latest-indyref2-poll-shows-no-27375428
Further evidence of the poll’s bad smell, in the Record report, is this
While chief executive of Scotland in Union Pamela Nash said: “This poll may have a smaller sample than other polls, but it is part of the ongoing trend which confirms that most people in Scotland want to remain part of the UK.
So far, only the Record has been daft enough to run with what is clearly an untrustworthy pollster of the kind we’ll see more of between now and October 23.
