A new poll suggests that the pro-union campaign has maintained the lead over the individuals supporting ‘Yes’ vote with only a week left for Scottish independence referendum to take place.

An earlier YouGov poll at the end of August had witnessed a sensational u-turn in the support trend as the ‘Yes’ campaign took the lead against the individuals backing union.

According to the latest Survation poll, it has been emerged that 53% of Scots plan to vote No at September 18 referendum, with 47% saying they will vote in favour of independence, after factoring out the undecided voters.

For survey sample, a total of 1,000 Scots were contacted to get the latest stats on referendum, with 47.6% responded to back the union, while 42.4% said they favoured independence and the remaining 10% still to make up their minds.

The study results welcomed by the Independence campaigners, saying it was the highest ever recorded level of support for ‘Yes’ campaign in a Survation poll.

Yes Scotland chief executive Blair Jenkins has claimed that with just over a week to go they were now “in touching distance of success next Thursday”.

The latest swing-back of balance in favour of pro-union campaign has revealed after three elite Westminster leaders travelled to north of the border in order to persuade Scots to save 307-year-old union.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg flew separately to Scotland to convince public through latest proposals of a fast-tracked timetable for further devolution of tax powers and welfare spending to Holyrood after the next U.K. election.

With the historic vote only a week away, the trend also seems to indicate confusion among the voters.
