This is the tenth consecutive poll showing a yes majority, although 58% is the highest percentage yet.

1045 Scots of voting age were interviewed by phone earlier this month.

Young people were the largest group to support Scottish independence with 16-24-year olds 79% voting in favour.

Similarly, more than 68% of 25-34-year olds and 70% of 35-44-year olds also voted supporting Scottish independence.

With only 40% of over 65′ year old’s voting in support.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on news that 58% of people intended to vote for the SNP tweeted,

Emily Gray, Managing Director of Ipsos MORI Scotland, said: “Our poll suggests that there will be significant public pressure for the UK Government to transfer powers to the Scottish Parliament to hold a second independence referendum if the SNP win a majority at next year’s Holyrood elections.”
