This could be down to “shy unionists”
With the ongoing debate about phone polls versus online ones there’s a new Ipsos Scotland survey for STV which has extraordinary figures with the SNP on its biggest level yet.
The firm is the only one that regularly carries out phone polls in Scotland and its findings this morning are remarkable.
There’s been a lot of talk about “shy responders” to phone polling with supporters of less popular positions said to be reluctant to volunteer that information in a live conversation with a pollster. Could that be happening here?
The answer is that we don’t know but this poll will become a reference point on the shy factor
