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”.

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