Poll: Majority want Sturgeon to stay as First Minister

Poll result

A Panelbase poll, commisioned by The Sunday Times, indicates that 52% of respondents would prefer if Sturgeon remained as First Minister for the rest of this parliament, while 34 per cent of the 2,038 voters surveyed between November 9 and 15 said they would like her to leave the position. The poll also indicates that a majority of Scots don’t know who they would back to be the next First Minister if Sturgeon steps down, with 64 per cent of voters have no view on who the next leader of the SNP should be. Pottential successors include Kate Forbes on 7%  and John Swinney on 6%. Curtice:
