Slender lead for No camp in latest poll

The No campaign continues to have a slender lead over Yes ahead of tomorrow's Scottish independence referendum, the latest opinion poll has suggested.

A Panelbase survey found 52% of Scots are to vote for the union, with 48% favouring independence, when undecided voters are excluded. The result is exactly the same as three separate polls which were published last night.

The Panelbase survey, which came out less that 24 hours before voting gets under way in the referendum, continues to suggest the campaign over the future of the UK could go down to the wire.

  • Exactly half of the 1,004 people who were questioned said they would be voting No to independence, with 45% voting Yes
  • Just five percent of voters have still to make up their mind
  • 54% of all men questioned were Yes voters, ahead of 44% voting No and three percent who are undecided
  • 39% of women questioned said they would be voting Yes tomorrow, with 54% backing No and seven percent undecided
