Excluding those that stated they didn’t know or wouldn’t vote, this amounted to a lead of 52 per cent to 48 per cent for an unbiased Scotland.

The ballot was performed by Michael Ashcroft, a Conservative who opposed Boris Johnson’s management.

“Within the wake of [Prime Minister] Boris Johnson’s go to to Edinburgh final week I polled Scots to measure help for a second independence referendum and to gauge opinion on independence itself,” Ashcroft stated.

“I discovered a small majority in favour of a brand new vote – and the primary lead for an unbiased Scotland for greater than two years,” he stated.

Scots rejected independence by 55 to 45 per cent in a 2014 referendum however variations over Brexit have strained relations with the federal government in London.
