The polls are open….. it’s snowing, raining, sleety, chilly in some places….. sunny, well sunny periods, in others. Never mind the weather! Go and vote. You can tune in to IndyLive Radio on 7th and 8th May for our election coverage.
Here are the final polling predictions….. Election Polling provides a prediction based on weighted averages.
They reckon SNP will be one short of overall majority with 64 seats. Overall support for independence in the new Parliament is predicted as 75 seats which is 58% of the total 129 seats.
The final poll on 4 May from YouGov is more optimistic. When the YouGov % support figures are run through Election Polling, the prediction is 68 for SNP. With 13 for Scottish Greens, that produces an overall pro-independence presence of 81 seats, or 63% of the total.
