The SNP‘s lead for the next general election has been slashed to just five points, a new poll shows. The latest polling from Redfield-Wilton still puts the nationalist party on course to win the most Scottish seats at the next general election, but Labour is closing the gap.
Labour are second on 31 percent, the Tories third on 19 percent, with the Liberal Democrats on 10 percent.
The polling also showed a 6 percent lead for No if Scotland was to hold another independence referendum in a blow to the SNP.
Some 44 percent said they would vote to break away from the UK, compared to 50 percent who backed the Union.
