Polls show sup­port for SNP fall­ing

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News -

SCOTS are in­creas­ingly disil­lu­sioned with the SNP, re­veal polls re­leased ahead of the party’s au­tumn con­fer­ence.

A YouGov sur­vey to­day for the Scot­land in Union cam­paign shows 42 per cent dis­ap­prove of the SNP’s record, while 39 per cent ap­prove.

Some 45 per cent said Nicola Stur­geon is do­ing well – but 44 per cent said she was do­ing badly. Scot­land in Union chief ex­ec­u­tive Pamela Nash, pic­tured, said: ‘The tide is now turn­ing and the SNP’s ob­ses­sion with the con­sti­tu­tion is cost­ing them sup­port.’ A sep­a­rate YouGov poll, for yes­ter­day’s Times news­pa­per, sug­gested that if an elec­tion were held to­mor­row, she would re­main First Min­is­ter but with six fewer MSPs. Nearly three quar­ters of Scots are also pes­simistic about Brexit.
