Scottish polling seems to have settled into a roughly monthly rhythm at the moment, though after months of Panelbase polls it’s nice to have a bit of a change with a YouGov.
I’m not entirely sure why, but there are two particular misconceptions about Holyrood’s voting system that pop up frequently amongst journalists. AMS isn’t “complex”, and the SNP didn’t break it in 2011 – and you don’t need to be a mathematical genius to understand either of these things.
Panelbase, with these prolific polls you are really spoiling us! The third month in a row with a Panelbase, whilst YouGov and Survation have ended up very quiet.

The SSP thing is a weird YouGov blip, everyone, behave yourselves.
Much of our lives may be on hold as the globe grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, but in this time of great uncertainty we can at least rely on there being yet another Panelbase poll.
We haven’t actually had a full Survation poll since March last year, so this is a welcome bit of diversity in terms of polling agencies.
SNP – 64
Conservative – 24
Labour – 24
