SNP MP Stewart McDonald hailed the “stunning poll”.
Another stunning poll on Scottish independence.
— Stewart McDonald MP (@StewartMcDonald)
Michael Gray, part of The Skotia team, said independence “is becoming the settled will of the Scottish people”.
Independence is becoming the settled will of the Scottish people, uniting supporters of all parties & none. A referendum will be won with over 60% support & provide a basis for building a more democratic & equal country. 🏴

Moray MSP Richard Lochhead and Na h-Eileanan an Iar MP Angus MacNeil thanked Boris Johnson for his help in driving up support.

SNP depute leader Keith Brown said the poll result reflected the feedback he had received from people across Scotland.
More encouraging news for Independence supporters, with Panelbase showing support at 55%. This is borne out by feedback to me from many (Zoom) meetings with Members across the country. Our diversity is our strength, and our unity of purpose will make sure we win.

Jonathon Shafi, co-founder of the Radical Independence Campaign, also gave the credit to the Prime Minister.
6 years on, the current polling has flipped the referendum result of 2014. 55% now favour Scottish independence. Fuelled in large part by Johnson and his cabinet of crooks and reprobates it is time to make the break. Get independence done.

Glasgow East MP David Linden added: “And people wonder why the Cabinet Office won’t publish its own private polling on Scottish independence…”

The former LibDem candidate for London mayor, Siobhan Benita, also expressed her support for Scottish independence.
If I were Scottish I’d vote yes at this stage.
London independence from this shambles of a Brexit Britain wouldn’t be bad either. https://t.co/wmxdRt5mWE
