Panelbase : SNP in commanding lead for the Scottish Parliament

Many thanks to Marcia on the previous thread for alerting me to the fact that the Panelbase poll I mentioned also had voting intention figures for Holyrood. I was oblivious to the fact because it was published in the Sunday Times, and I don't pay the Murdoch levy...

Constituency ballot

SNP 45%
Labour 33%
Conservatives 13%
Liberal Democrats 5%

Regional list ballot

SNP 44%
Labour 31%
Conservatives 12%
Greens 6%
Liberal Democrats 5%


Needless to say, on those figures the SNP would be enjoying another landslide on the scale of their 2011 triumph. So all that and the Yes vote within striking distance on the referendum question as well. Long may the supposed "Scomnishambles" continue!

I'm dubious about bad polls and good alike, but secretly I'm always a bit encouraged by results like these.

Of course they are only snapshots, but it is comforting to know that after 1.5 years as a majority government and 5.5 in government, the SNP is still so far in front of the opposition.
