Polls show support for SNP falling
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.
