Poll: Support for Scottish Independence at 46 Percent

Thursday, 18 September 2014 05:50 PM EDT

Support for Scottish independence amounts to 46 percent of the electorate with 54 percent wanting to stay in the United Kingdom, according to a poll by YouGov carried out on the day of the referendum.

YouGov contacted Scots it had previously canvassed in recent days and its survey is not akin to a full exit poll. Just under two weeks ago, it produced a poll that briefly put the independence campaign ahead, sending shockwaves through the British establishment.

YouGov research manager Laurence Janta-Lipinski said the organization's last poll had picked up a "small but significant late swing from Yes to No on polling day."

"This YouGov poll indicates the union has prevailed, it certainly looks more comfortable than it did 10 days ago," Janta-Lipinski told Reuters. "It look like the union will remain intact for the time being."
