How would you vote if there is a second independence referendum in Scotland?

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said that a second independence referendum for Scotland is now highly likely following the UK decision to leave the EU even though Scotland voted to remain.

After the EU referendum, Nicola Sturgeon said: "It is, therefore, a statement of the obvious that the option of a second referendum must be on the table, and it is on the table."

Poll closed on 5th December 2016. It seems that support for independence is still at a similar level to what it was when the independence referendum was held in 2014!

44% (44 votes): Independence for Scotland
56% (56 votes): Remain part of the UK
Total votes: 100. (This poll is closed.)
