Poll: Should Scotland leave the UK?

An independence vote is very much “on the table” according to Nicola Sturgeon. Would you like to see the Scots leave?

SCOTLAND’S FIRST MINISTER said in the wake of last Friday’s shock Brexit result that a second referendum on independence for the country was very much “on the table”.

Nicola Sturgeon’s cabinet is working on legislation for a rerun of the 2014 ballot after Scotland opted to remain in the EU, in contrast to the UK’s overall decision to leave.

Meeting President Michael D Higgins yesterday, Sturgeon said she looked forward to having conversations with countries like Ireland as Scotland begins to explore options to stay in the European Union.

This morning we’re asking: Would you like to see Scotland leave the UK?

Poll Results:
