ICM, Opinium and Survation polls confirm YES support is rising - now at 48% and in touching distance of success on Thursday

Welcoming new ICM, Opinium and Survation polls to be published tomorrow by The Scotsman, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail respectively, all of which put YES support at 48 per cent to 52 per cent for NO, YES Scotland Chief Executive Blair Jenkins said:

'These are hugely encouraging for Yes - a six-point narrowing of the gap in the ICM poll since the last comparable poll, a four point narrowing of the gap since the last Survation poll on Saturday and a two point narrowing of the gap since the last Opinium poll in The Observer on Sunday, show that Yes has the momentum as we approach referendum day.

'People know that a Yes vote is Scotland's one opportunity to achieve job-creating powers, protect our NHS from the damaging impact of Westminster cuts and privatisation, and ensure that never again do we get Tory governments imposed on Scotland that we have roundly rejected.

'These polls - like all the recent polls - show that we are in touching distance of success on Thursday. The referendum is on a knife edge, and this will spur on everybody who wants and is working hard for a Yes to redouble their efforts.

'As we say in response to all the polls, we are working flat out to ensure that we achieve a Yes vote, because it's the biggest opportunity we will ever have to build a fairer society and more prosperous economy.

'This referendum is unlike any that has been held before because of an expected record turnout - which we believe will favour the Yes vote.'
