Has the Referendum Campaign Made a Difference?

Reports & Briefings
Clare de Mowbray

Scotland’s voters go to the polls on 18th September in order to choose whether to stay in the United Kingdom or to leave and become an independent country. In this briefing we assess what impact the referendum has had on public attitudes towards independence, using new evidence from the 2014 Scottish Social Attitudes survey conducted earlier this summer. We examine whether support for independence has increased or decreased, whether people’s views on some of the key arguments put forward in the campaign have changed, and whether or not there have been any changes in who supports independence and why.
