More encouragement for the SNP from Angus Reid

Thanks to Marcia on the previous thread for alerting me to the detailed results from this month's GB-wide Angus Reid poll. Given that the numbers relate solely to Westminster voting intention, the Scottish subsample is another very positive straw in the wind for the SNP. Here are the full figures -

Labour 43% (+2)
SNP 38% (+5)
Conservatives 10% (-3)
Liberal Democrats 5% (-1)
Others 4% (-3)

At the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time, it's worth pointing out that Angus Reid subsamples are of rather more interest than those of other pollsters, because they tend to be much more stable over time, suggesting they have been weighted as full-scale polls would be. Whether they have been accurately weighted is of course the million dollar question!


  1. the SNP need to do more to squash the Tory/Libdem vote even further.

  2. If there's any truth in the Lib Dems' 5% showing, I'm not sure it's humanly possible to squash them any further!

  3. What no Braveheart?? Must be good news for the SNP.
