LONDON, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of supporters of Scotland’s state sovereignty and a break-up with the United Kingdom is increasing though they remain a minority, research suggests.
Poll findings released on Monday say 37% of Scots speak in favor of independence, 5% more than three months earlier. Forty-four percent of Scottish voters do not believe there is any need to split with Great Britain, the survey indicates.
Current strengthening of Scottish nationalists was a “landmark moment” that made independence “look like a practical possibility”, the newspaper Scotland on Sunday reported.
Eight months remain until Scotland's referendum on self-determination, due in September.
