Scottish independence poll: More undecided voters

Scottish independence poll: More undecided voters | Referendum 2014 | Scoop.it
SUPPORT for Scottish independence has fallen slightly, as has support for the Union, according to two new opinion polls published today.
Peter A Bell's insight:

Alistair Darling has a lot to learn about democracy. The settled will of the people of Scotland will be decided by the referendum, not by some British Labour back-bench MP serving as the Tory Prime Minister's stooge.

Expert warns over poll showing highest Yes backing

Expert warns over poll showing highest Yes backing | Referendum 2014 | Scoop.it
A leading polling expert has said that a poll giving the Yes campaign its highest rating ever should not be taken as evidence that polls are relentlessly moving towards a Yes vote.
Peter A Bell's insight:

Standard British media dishonesty from one of the masters of that nasty little genre. Despite Maddox's best efforts to deceive readers into thinking otherwise, the truth is that neither Professor Curtice nor any other authoritative figure has questioned the credibility of the Panelbase poll.
