On Sunday we reported on the ICM poll in Scotland on September’s IndyRef which had the gap narrowing sharply. On one measure those who wanted independence were just 6% behind.
Now I’ve had a chance to look at the detail and the above findings stand out – whether voters mght change their mind broken down by which party they supported in the 2011 Holyrood elections.
On the voting question LAB voters from 2011 split 28% YES to 72%. LDs were 26-74 against while Scottish Tories were 6% to 94%.
The second question about certainty and the possibility that minds could be changed highlights the key battleground – the very large number of 2011 SLAB voters who are not totally committed to either side and say they might change their minds.
