Scottish Independence – It’s Very Close Indeed
I’ve updated the graphs with the latest polls and re-drawn them, I’ve also ignored the polls from before March 2014, so this is just the last six months of polling (about 50 separate polls). My original data source is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_Scottish_independence_referendum,_2014
The graph clearly shows that as the poll gets closer more people are making their minds up, and that the gap between the views is narrowing. Yesterday saw a major effort by the No campaign to influence the Don’t Knows which won’t yet have made its way into the opinion data as the latest one was only published yesterday.
If you haven’t made up your mind yet then you might be the person that decides the outcome. Here are some useful links that might be of assistance in gathering the facts (NB apply buckets of salt to anything said by politicians, and these aren’t necessarily free of bias,):
Here are a couple of tweets when I asked people to recommend sites. If you have any recommendations then either share in the comments or send me a tweet. If a site supports a campaign be sure to mention that when you post it.
