Mark Diffley, Research Director at Ipsos MORI said:
‘This poll reinforces the task ahead for the ‘Yes’ to independence campaign. Despite a high profile launch of their campaign, the public appears unconvinced as yet and support for independence has fallen. The difficulty faced by the campaign is reinforced by the fall in the personal approval rating for the First Minister. He remains Scotland’s most prominent politician and well liked party leader but his rating has now fallen below what we saw in the immediate aftermath of last year’s election victory and returned to the levels we were recording in 2010.’
- Results are based on a survey of 1,003 respondents conducted by telephone between 7th June and 14th June 2012.
- Data are weighted by age, sex and working status using census data, and tenure using SHS 2007-2008 data, and by public-private sector employment by Scottish Government Quarterly Public Sector Series data.
- An asterisk (*) indicates a percentage of less than 0.5% but greater than 0. Where results do not sum to 100, this may be due to multiple responses or computer rounding. Where the base size is less than 30 the number (N) rather than the percentage of respondents is given.
