As the race for the Scottish leadership gets underway two new polls indicate that the SNP could take 20 plus from Labour at next years Westminster election basically imploding Miliband’s 35% strategy. (This is to basically win off the back of disaffected Lib Dems).
The latest polls put the SNP in a commanding lead over Labour
SNP on 52%
Labour on just 23%, the
Scottish Conservatives on 10%
Liberal Democrats and Scottish Greens both on 6%.
In either case Labour would be likely to lose more than half of its seats….
