Final Poll of 2013 Shows Substantial SNP Lead


The Scottish National Party today (Hogmanay) published a poll of Scottish Parliament voting intentions, conducted by Panelbase and commissioned by the SNP.

This last poll of 2013 shows the SNP with a substantial 8-point lead in the constituency vote, and a 9-point lead in the regional list vote.

Welcoming these "remarkable" Holyrood ratings, SNP Business Convener Derek Mackay said:

"For the SNP to enjoy such a substantial lead - after more than six-and-a-half years into government - is a remarkable achievement by any standard.

"The SNP continue to move Scotland forward – delivering effective, competent government in the face of Westminster cuts. And this poll reinforces a previous key finding - that people trust the Scottish Government rather than Westminster to take decisions for Scotland by a margin of nearly four-to-one.

"We are moving into a crucial year in 2014 - with the all-important referendum in September, but also a by-election in January and the European election in May - and these figures demonstrate that the SNP are in tip-top condition and excellent heart."

The Panelbase poll was conducted among 1,012 adults in Scotland between 13-20 December. Panelbase is a member of the British Polling Council. The results are:

Scottish Parliament constituency vote
SNP: 40.00%
Labour: 32.00%
Conservative: 15.00%
LibDem: 5.00%
Other: 8.00%

Regional List vote
SNP: 40.00%
Labour: 31.00%
Conservative: 14.00%
LibDem: 5.00%
Green: 5.00%
Other: 5.00%

A previous Panelbase poll commissioned by the SNP in August asked:

"Who do you trust to take the best decisions for Scotland: the Scottish Government or the Westminster Government?"

The Scottish Government: 60.00%
The Westminster Government: 16.00%
Neither: 19.00%
Don't Know: 5.00%
