SNP on target for Holyrood poll

Apr 8 2006

The SNP is at least halfway towards its target of winning 20 constituency seats in next year's Holyrood (Scottish Parliament) elections, according to a recent poll.

The YouGov research, commissioned by the party, also saw 46% of the 1,607 Scots surveyed supporting independence, with 39% against, and 82% saying the matter should be decided by referendum.

And it found that of the 69% of respondents who had an opinion on the issue, 43% believed SNP leader Alex Salmond would make the best First Minister, while 27% opted for current incumbent and Scottish Labour leader Jack McConnell.
