Shock YouGov poll is torrid for Theresa, as Scottish public demand Holyrood MUST be given a say over Brexit

The results of four YouGov poll questions on Brexit commissioned by the SNP have just been released.  I gather they were part of a much longer poll that included a straight question on independence, so unless the results are being released in stages, the likelihood is that we are seeing the figures most favourable to the Scottish Government's position.

Probably the most important finding is a decisive 51% to 29% majority in favour of the Scottish Government's proposals for Scotland remaining in the single market being taken seriously by the UK government and raised in negotiations with the EU.  That's pretty embarrassing for Theresa May because we already know she's decided to do the complete opposite.

By a margin of 49% to 23%, respondents feel the Scottish Parliament should be consulted before Article 50 is triggered.  This question is asked in the context of the legal challenge before the Supreme Court, but of course the letter of the law and the spirit of the law are not necessarily the same thing - even if the court ruling goes the wrong way, there's nothing to stop the UK government respecting the Sewel Convention and giving the Scottish Parliament its proper role in the process.  That is clearly what the public want to see happen.

As you'd expect, people who voted Yes to independence in 2014 are strongly in favour of the Scottish Government's stance on both of the above questions.  More interesting, though, is that No voters are literally split down the middle, which raises the possibility that the UK government being seen to make no meaningful attempt to compromise could start to erode support for the union as the months go by.

If the independence numbers from this poll are being withheld, it's difficult to know what to read into that.  The SNP obviously wouldn't want to publish a poll showing a drop in support for independence, but then they probably wouldn't want to publish a poll showing a no change position either.  You could also make the case that they would withhold a poll showing a dramatic increase in support for Yes, because that might put too much pressure on themselves to call a referendum quickly.  I suspect they might have been tempted to publish a poll showing a middling jump for Yes into the high 40s, but that's just a guess.

    2. It's still .co.uk for me, but blogspots have been suffering from this redirection problem for a while. Peter Curran tweeted a few days ago about his blog being redirected to .nl, but he's fixed it now. Google it and you can find the fix.

      You should also take advantage of Blogger's free security certificate. There is an option in Blogger accounts - "If HTTPS redirect is turned on: Visitors to your blog will always go to https://".
      I've used that, and it works. This has an advantage in how Google prioritises search results, and may be why Google is giving away free security certificates in Blogger. The http:// version of the blog will not appear anywhere.

  3. There is no chance the SNP would release a poll showing majority support for independence. Never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake. At the moment WM is ignoring Scotland a poll with an indy lead might make them take notice - remember the 51-49 YouGov - we love you Scotland etc... It is too far from the indyref we really would be peaking too soon. No keep any pro-indy majority under the radar until it is too late :-)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "Peaking too soon" makes no sense in the context of a decision to become independent. This isn't a high jump with 'momentum' and a short carefully-timed leap to scrape us over over the 50% mark. If public opinion is in favour of independence it ought to be still in favour after a few months or years - independence will last longer than that.

      Delete
    2. Denise is spot on. Anecdotally I'm personally aware of a marked swing to support Scottish independence in the EU following May's speech. These are people known to me who voted No in 2014, who had been wondering if they had made the wrong decision, and who have now come out and said that they did, and will be voting YES in IndyRef2. It would be foolhardy at this stage to throw down the gauntlet of such a swing to independence in polling to the perfidious Union. Keep it quiet and let Westminster arrogance do the rest until polling day.

    3. The poll was conducted before May's speech, so it wouldn't have picked up a post-speech swing in any case.

I'm not sure why it's so difficult to scroll past annoying comments. The sort of 'problem' that might make me reluctantly switch would be a serious bug in the platform, but I'm completely oblivious to any of the issues referred to above. I noticed other bugs a few months back, but they seemed to resolve themselves.

    1. Why?

      Whether the polls are showing 60 or 6% is irrelevant as far as fighting to keep Scotland in the EU.

      Also, how many times in the past have the SNP published independence polls? Good or bad?

    2. Interesting - I didn't selective/partial publication of survey results was "allowed". I thought that was one requirement of being an accredited polling organisation.

    3. Anon : I don't think it's worrying that it hasn't been released, in fact it's fairly typical. There are some circumstances in which it might have been released, but there are quite a wide range of circumstances (both good and bad) in which it would not have been. There's also an outside chance the straight independence question was not even commissioned by the SNP - it might have been tacked on by YouGov themselves for testing/technical purposes, for example.

    How can you fight to stay in the EU? You need to hold a referendum and leave the Union then apply to the EU for membership which may not be granted more so if Scotland becomes an economic basket case. If any of you Nat sis think the EU will make us a special case then you are living in a fantasy world. The EU is a self serving elitist club and we are better out.

  31. The Brexiteers trumpeting open borders and free trade with Trumpland.
    Does this mean we get Trump's unwanted Mexicans instead of Brexiteer's unwanted Syrian refugees?
    When they tried this on with India,they were told a similar story.
    You want free trade,then part of that bundle comes with freedom of migration.
    Seems that is OK with anyone except our European neighbours.
    Now why would that be I wonder?

      Trade and migration are not necessarily compatible. The workers from the trading nations carrying the goods require overnight accommodation and that is necessary. The terror threat in Europe is very real thus border controls are required. That aside the EU experiment is now on its deathbed but it will fight to the end such is the wealth accumulated by the beaurocracy and their flozzies.

      The troll calls scottish people "jocks", advocates arming Leave campaigners, claimed Jo Cox's husband was a fascist, uses racial and ethnic slurs, pretends to be Labour (badly) while espousing far-right racist hate-speech, praises Theresa May and the tories and displays a perverted poisonous obsession with Scotland's First Minister & her predecessor

    James, infestation was a word used by the Nazis vermin being another towards the Jews. It seems you may have a real Nazi on here as opposed to your normal Jock Nat sis.

      You have to empty your bag on a daily basis as required and follow strict meticulous hygiene. Otherwise the shite will regurgitate and leave by your mouth thus the shite you write Nat si.

  33. For clarity, I am going to delete any further comments giving me advice or instructions on how to deal with the "GWC problem". I am sick to the back teeth of this - I have answered the same points again and again and again. My answers are highly unlikely to change. Perpetually going round in circles is completely pointless. No more, thank you.

    Looks like the Jock Nat si party are not going to use their tax raising powers and the cuts will go ahead. The Tory press are urging the Nat sis not to raise tax and the Nat sis are going to comply. The term Tartan Tory is as vialble as it has always been.

    1. SNP: we need independence so we can help ra poor!

      UK Tories: Here is a tool we are giving you. You can use it to help 'ra poor', without breaking up the United Kingdom.

      SNP: Not interested. We want independence!

    James, re - Yank missionaries. Watch out for the bright white perfect teeth and the cheesy grin. And avoid eye contact.
