One fairly consistent feature of GB-wide polling is that Labour tend to fare better in supplementary questions among Scottish respondents than they do among respondents elsewhere. For example, Scots are typically more likely to think that Ed Miliband and Ed Balls are preferable to Cameron and Osborne as custodians of the economy. But there's precious little sign of that phenomenon in YouGov's latest polling on whether Ed Miliband is a strong or a weak leader. Only one region of GB has a lower proportion of people than Scotland who think that Miliband is a strong leader, and there is no region at all that has a higher proportion of people who think he is weak.
PERCENTAGE WHO THINK ED MILIBAND IS A 'STRONG' LEADER :
South excluding London 10%
Wales and English Midlands 14%
North of England 15%
PERCENTAGE WHO THINK ED MILIBAND IS A 'WEAK' LEADER :
South excluding London 49%
Wales and English Midlands 42%
North of England 45%
This matters because the No campaign's hopes rest to a large extent on Labour being perceived as having a genuine chance of winning the next UK general election. Scots who think that the party is led by a weak leader are scarcely likely to be filled with confidence on that score.
