SNP surge dominates Scottish Labour

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%.


Liberal Democrats-4%

In either case Labour would be likely to lose more than half of its seats….
