Panelbase have released data tables for their recent Sunday Times poll. And wow.
That’s quite something.
Among people who voted No in 2014, a thumping 48% now intend to vote for the Tories in a general election, compared to just 22% voting Labour.
Among the C2DE demographic – essentially the working class – the Tories lead Labour by 22% to 16%. Just one in six of the Scottish working class would now vote Labour, having supported them unquestioningly for half a century.
(And it’s not like the working class have gone right-wing, because C2DE Tory support is still at barely over a fifth and UKIP are nowhere. But with a stratospheric 53% now backing the SNP, that still leaves the Tories ahead of the one-time People’s Party.)
So that strategy went well, guys. Keep it up a bit longer, why don’t you?
Someone’s definitely Better Together with you.
