Poll after poll is showing the SNP could fill Holyrood, have a record number of members in Westminster. Labour could lose 80% of Holyrood seats. The article I did a week or so ago stated similar figures https://shaunynews.com/2015/03/20/bombshell-survation-poll-shows-majority-of-scots-now-support-new-independence-push/ The push for votes starts officially on Monday. So far everyone has spoken, made promises and told the usual garbage. The SNP have been quiet and I think will be low key as they have a strong tide of support behind them without the need to promise more. Interesting few months ahead. This article is breaking down what we did in the referendum and look at the 65+ section, NOT ALL, had that been 20% the other way Scotland would be free from the Union, we were very close. I believe another chance will come sooner than many think and I think through May 7 voting Scotland will get the ‘Edinburgh Agreement’ and the ‘Vow’ given in full. Watch this space I am guessing. Also, this article is NOT saying “All over 65’s lost the referendum for Scotland” However it does point to that age group where more no voters were voting. I know many over 65’s who votes yes and hardly any who voted no, kinda surprised us all when the results come in. THE POINT of this article is to make sure next vote we are informed. These are my words, all the words under ~~~~Story~~~~ is the official story from the link above. So please, I am not, would never and wouldn’t hear ANYONE blaming all over 65’s, let us now come together and vote SNP on May 7th INFORMED!
THE LARGEST survey focused on Scotland’s independence referendum has found that a majority of young people and those on lower incomes voted Yes to Scotland becoming an independent country. Referendum survey suggests that age and social class were key to referendum result
The poll of over 5,000 people was released today by political researchers and found that age, social class and identity were all significant factors in how social groups voted in last September’s referendum. In figures covered by The Daily Record, every age group under 50 recorded a majority in favour of independence. The highest support for independence was amongst 16-19 years olds at 62.5 per cent.
The lowest support for independence was among those over 70 years old, where around one in three voters supported change. Voters who identified as ‘working class’ also supported independence by 53.6 per cent in favour to 46.4 per cent against. 56.5 per cent of those on the lowest incomes voted Yes in the survey.
The lowest support for independence was among those over 70 years old, where around one in three voters supported change.
Top and middle earners, as well as those who identified as ‘middle class’, were more likely to oppose independence when surveyed. National identity also provided a strong correlation to political views on independence. While only 10 per cent of those who considered themselves only ‘British’ supported a Yes vote, 88.6 per cent of people who identified as ‘Scottish’ voted in favour. Men were more likely to support independence than women. A narrow majority of men voted in favour of independence at 53.2 per cent, while only 43.4 per cent of women voted Yes. The survey conducted by the University of Edinburgh also found that those from a catholic faith or those who were atheists were more likely to support independence compared to those from a presbyterian background.
