Unfortunately YouGov didn’t test out other possible contenders apart from Gordon Brown.
The issue for Murphy is that he played such a high profile and sometimes controversial role in the NO IndyRef campaign. Maybe he’s a victim of the apparent mood-shift north of the border to the indpendence question.
My view is that many Scottish voters will generally support Scottish independence until the moment that they are asked to vote on it.
There’s little doubt that the referendum has polarised attitudes and you’ve got to admire the SNP’s chutzpah on the way it has gone forward from what was a clear defeat.
