Holyrood '16 polls and predictions

Recommended Posts

Neil Findlay's head's gone again. It's alarming how fast he's unravelled from one of the decent Labour MSP's to yet another SNPbad sideshow:

He also accused Humza Yousaf of "hob nobbing" with Tory MP Sir Nicholas Soames.

They attended the same event.

That's it.

Not a great poll for the Tories either - they're on 12% on both constituency and the regional list and their seat numbers remaining at 15.

SNP haven't had a great few months to be honest - the Forth Road bridge being the latest thing - but none of the opposition are able to take advantage.

Constituency;

SNP 58%

Labour 21%

Tories 12%

Lib Dems 4%

List

SNP 54%

Labour 20%

Tories 12%

Greens 9%

Lib Dems 4%

Lib dems down to 2 seats - Orkney and a regional seat.

Thinking about ti, the only issue with numbers this good for the SNP is that realistically there is only way they can go (if they don't hold steady), and any signs of recovery for Labour closer to the time become a 'momentum' process story that the press will regurgitate ad infinitum.

SNP support by age;

16-34: 72% :lol:

35-54: 64% :lol:

55+: 43% :o

These kind of overall poll numbers are ten a penny nowadays but the above numbers are very, very pleasing. The game's up.

Give the voters an alternative to the SNP and they'll look at it. There isn't one at the moment.

That said, a little humility from the SNP's supporters wouldn't go amiss.

The SNP don't have a monopoly on knowledge and would be better respected if they learned to tolerate differing points of view a little more.

I have been "Yes" since the late 1980s and the SNP has come on so much since that time. But there are elements of their talk-left-act-right agenda that may come back to haunt them in the medium term. I think they are wrong on council tax and wrong on income tax.

They also need to be careful not to let complacency and arrogance in. That's what killed new Labour at the turn of the century, with a similarly massive majority. Well, that and Tony Blair going mad.

No one expects anything other than a vast SNP win next year. But a victory delivered on the back of a now slightly tarnished lustre and the laughably pisspoor quality of the main opposition parties can ring slightly hollow.

Time for the SNP to be a bit bolder I think, rather than creeping around trying not to offend anybody. A visionary plan for a second majority term is needed along with the guts to see it through.

Oh dear...

Maybe if Labour backed independence. Unlike NK the people of Scotland get to choose who they vote for. It's not the SNPs fault that the opposition are terrible

Personally, I love it when folk like you "ask questions" of the SNP because they're, without fail, stupid questions showing up the barely concealed wee tantrum you're having that your own party is being continually electorally reamed by the "nats".

Couldn't agree more. There's a feeling that the SNP are treading water at the moment, happy just to win election after election because the opposition is so poor and they've got 45% of the vote sewn up before the campaigns even begin.

In fairness they will always have at least 45% sewn up before any election, until independence or another major party backs independence . At LEAST...
