Christopher McLean, Senior Researcher at Ipsos MORI Scotland, said:
“After six and a half years in power the Scottish Government remains popular, considerably increasing its approval rating over the last three months. This is the highest rating we have recorded for the Scottish Government since we began measuring satisfaction last year and is in stark contrast to the approval rating of the UK Government among the British public. However, a number of key groups remain less satisfied with the Scottish Government’s performance, namely women, older people and those living in more affluent areas of Scotland, all of whom are also the least likely to support a ‘Yes’ vote in next year’s referendum.”
- This presents the topline results from Scotland
- Results are based on a survey of 1,000 respondents (adults aged 16+) conducted by telephone
- Fieldwork dates: 9th – 15th September 2013
- Data are weight by: age, sex and working status using census data; tenure using SHS data; and public-private sector employment using Scottish Government Quarterly Public Sector Employment series data
- Where results do not sum to 100%, this may be due to computer rounding, multiple responses, or the exclusion of “don’t know” categories
- Results are based on all respondents (1,000) unless otherwise stated
More Britons want Government to make fast decisions in a crisis than wait for all the evidence, as long as they’re open about it
Latest research from Ipsos MORI shows that when given the choice, more Britons opt for Government to act quickly even if that means not all the evidence is available over waiting, when it comes to a crisis.
British people think that their local councils use evidence more than local MPs in the response to COVID-19
Polling to be released today by Ipsos MORI as part of Evidence Week in Parliament, an annual event that brings together researchers, constituents, and MPs to discuss evidence, asked UK adults how much they believe government ministers, their local MP, and their local council are using evidence in the response to COVID-19.
