During the count for May’s European Elections it became clear that count night needs more than one person on it. I’m therefore excited to announce I’m looking for people to join the Ballot Box Scotland Election Night Team.
Panelbase took a little longer than YouGov to stir from their summer slumber, but came out with a shiny new poll just in time for a conference weekend.
In an unexpected turn of events, former Scottish Liberal Democrats leader Tavish Scott announced his resignation last month, prompting a by-election for the Shetland constituency.
For a little bonus post from Ballot Box Scotland, I’ve had a look at the class of 1999. Of the 129 MSPs elected to the first Scottish Parliament, 26 are still to be found in the Holyrood chamber today.
Panelbase and the Sunday Times seem to have settled into a pattern of monthly polling, with this June poll being their fourth month on the trot. We’re now at the point it’d be really quite lovely for another paper/pollster partnership to pop up and do so regularly, as Panelbase is now completely dominating the Scottish polling output.
With just days to go until the EU Elections, Panelbase have stirred themselves into a second poll in pretty quick succession.
After nearly a year’s absence, YouGov have finally re-emerged with an absolute peach of a Scottish poll. All three parliaments plus the first proper Independence VI since December, making it almost worth the wait.
Two Scottish polls along at once? Who would have thought it! Ah, right, everyone, because it keeps happening.
