Brexit will increase support for independence to 50%, a new poll has found. 

The poll, conducted by Survation, found independence at historically high levels – and set to grow further if Brexit goes ahead. 

46% would vote Yes if a referendum was held tomorrow, an increase since 2014, growing to 50% if a referendum was held after the UK leaves the EU.

Commenting, SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon said:
“People in Scotland are responding to the sense of hope that independence will bring in place of the chaos and despair at Westminster.
“Support for Scotland becoming an independent country is at historically high levels - above the hugely impressive result secured in the 2014 referendum.
“It also shows that regardless of the type of Brexit the Tories offer, the simple fact of Brexit will increase support for independence to 50%.
“This is hardly surprising – the people of Scotland didn’t vote for Brexit, and they certainly didn’t vote to crash out of the EU. As well as inflicting a potential economic catastrophe on Scotland, what the Tories are doing is a democratic outrage.
“Despite this the SNP will continue to argue for the UK to remain in the EU, or as a minimum to remain in the customs union and single market – which is eight times the size of the UK market alone – in order to  protect jobs and living standards.
“These figures show that it is the SNP - and our vision of Scotland as a successful independent country - that offers people hope, at a time when the UK Government and the Westminster parties have brought only despair.
“This poll also reveals why Labour and the Tories are so scared of letting the people of Scotland make their own decisions on Scotland’s future.  The more they arrogantly seek to stand in the way of Scotland making her own decisions, the more support for independence will continue to grow.”
