LATEST YOUGOV POLL SHOWS SNP GOING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
The Scottish National Party welcomed the YouGov opinion poll in today’s Scotland on Sunday newspaper, which shows the SNP building a lead over Labour in the Scottish Parliament election campaign – with a 5 per cent swing to the SNP from Labour since last weekend’s YouGov poll in Scotland on Sunday.
These are the SNP's best-ever ratings in a YouGov poll - both in the constituency and list votes.
SNP Depute Leader and Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
"This is an excellent poll, and confirms that support is continuing to build for the SNP's record, team and vision for Scotland. More and more people are moving to the SNP - many for the first time - because they
want to re-elect the Scottish Government and Alex Salmond for First Minister.
"The stronger the SNP vote, the more progress can be achieved for Scotland
"This election is about Scotland, and we are working hard for jobs, opportunity and fairness. We are taking absolutely nothing for granted, and have lifted our campaign to a new level of activity this weekend, as
our candidates and supporters communicate the SNP's positive message to people the length and breadth of Scotland."
