2014 Scottish independence referendum

Poll: Majority support devo-max

19 Feb, 2014

A ScotCen Scottish Social Attitudes survey shows that a majority of Scottish voters would back remaining in the union with the Scotland granted ‘maximum devolution’ of powers, if it were included as an option on the referendum ballot. It finds that 32% of voters would back a devo-max plan with the Scottish Parliament running everything apart from defence and foreign affairs, while only 31% back independence. When voters are asked to choose between independence and more devolution, 61% would back ‘devo-max’ and 39% independence. In a run-off between ‘devo-max’ and the status quo, ‘devo-max’ would win by 62% to 38%.
