Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson managed to make a bit of a balloon of herself earlier this month when she contrived to get THREE fairly key facts wrong in a single tweet about a poll on a second independence referendum.
(We’re not sure who the guy in the picture with her is. Probably a colleague.)
We suspected the reason she’d so badly misunderstood the data was that there were two options for “have another indyref in the next two years” and only one for “don’t have another indyref”, so when we were putting our latest poll together we thought we’d try to make it easier for her by having an equal number on both sides.
The results, funnily enough, came out much the same as the previous time – 51% of Scots, including 25% of No voters, want another referendum in the near future, either pre- or post-Brexit, with 49% wanting it put off to the distant future or never.
Hopefully she’ll be able to figure it out this time.
