A new poll from Sky News shows Scots are now less enthusiastic about the prospect of independence, but also show SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon heading for a majority win in this week’s Holyrood Elections. A new poll by Opinium found Nicola Sturgeon is on course to return as Scotland’s First Minister with a slim overall majority for the country’s leading party.
The latest poll found that support for a second independece referendum is now equally tied at 50-50, once “don’t knows” are excluded.
This is down from 51-49 in the last Sky News poll.
The poll sampled 1,015 Scottish voters between April 28 and May 3.
