Scottish Labour trailing UK Labour by 26%

PA Media

In the Herald today:

Labour opens up biggest poll lead since 1997: Labour have opened up a 36 point lead in one opinion poll, as reaction to the Conservative crisis continues.

When you look deeper for the Scottish sub-poll figures, ignored by the Herald, you find once more Scottish Labour trailing far behind the UK Labour figure of 56% at only 30%:

This is not a one-off. In poll after poll, the Scottish Labour support, in the Scottish sup-polls of around 120, is averaging 26% having taken 6 to 8% off the Tory vote and perhaps 1 or 2% from the SNP but they remain secure at 44-48%.

In terms of full Scottish polls, on 4 October, YouGov had Labour at 30% and Savanta ComRes had them at 26%. At the same time, UK Polls had Labour at between 48% and 52%!

Scottish Labour is going nowhere.

  1. Re.Labour is going nowhere
    They cannot possibly go anywhere in Scotland as they not only are stuck but
    Sinking in the Quick Sands of their ” Branch Office Status ”
    And only the harness of The inaliable right of Self Determination can possibly
    Rescue them

  2. Scottish ( sic ) Labour are a dangerous distraction . They pretend that if a Labour Government is installed at Westminster then all will be right with the world .
    They fail to acknowledge that , as night follows day , the Tories will be back – and as bad as ever for Scotland ( not that Labour will necessarily be any better ! )

    Westminster Government is the REAL danger to Scotland , regardless of whether Blue or Red Tories are pulling the strings !
