Three in ten may change their vote in the referendum if Devo+ is offered in advance
Our poll for Reform Scotland
shows that 30% of Scots could change how they vote in the referendum if it was clear in advance that a ‘No’ vote would still result in Devo+ proposals being implemented. This is more likely to help those who oppose independence since 18% would be more likely to vote ‘No’ compared to 12% who would be more likely to vote ‘Yes’.
The poll also found that half of Labour supporters and over a quarter of SNP supporters think Scotland should remain part of the UK with the increased powers outlined in the Devo Plus proposal (52% and 28% respectively).
When asked about Scotland’s constitutional future in a single, three-option question, four-in-ten Scots back the Devo Plus proposals for more powers while remaining within the UK, while over a quarter (27%) back full independence and almost three-in-ten (29%) would prefer to retain the current settlement.
