New IndyRef poll for Scottish Daily Mail from Survation has NO lead back to what it was before the first debate

August 29th, 2014

Survation Indy Ref

The gap is just 6%

The above figures are from the first full post-debates Indy Ref poll which was carried out by Survation for the Scottish Daily Mail.

As can be seen the NO lead is back down to where it was before the first debate in early August – a 6% margin for NO.

The YES campaign will be delighted to be making up the ground lost – the big question is whether they can go forward from here.

It should be noted that Survation,along with Panelbase and ICM, have tended to show the best figures for YES. Ipsos-MORI, TNS and YouGov have the worst ones.
