New Scottish Voting Intention – Survation for the Daily Record

The latest Survation polling, conducted from 24th – 28th January 2018 on behalf of the Daily Record, shows Labour down two points in both the Westminster & Holyrood constituency polls, and one point in the Holyrood list vote, when compared with our last comparable polling in early December.


The SNP, by contrast, are up two points in the Westminster voting intention; translated into seats, it would mean they could win back nine of the 21 they lost at the 2017 election, including Gordon, Alex Salmond’s former seat.


Westminster Voting Intention:

SNP 39% (+2); LAB – 27% (-2); CON 24% (NC); LD 7% (NC); Other 3% (NC)
