Astounding Ashcroft polls put SNP ahead in two Edinburgh constituencies
When the third batch of Scottish constituency polls was released by Ashcroft last Friday, there was something of a mystery over what had happened to the polls in Edinburgh North & Leith and Edinburgh South – we’d heard earlier in the week that both seats had been polled by Populus alongside the others. It turns out that they were just taking a little longer to come through, and they’ve now been published.
Edinburgh North & Leith :
SNP 43% (+33)
Labour 29% (-9)
Conservatives 14% (-1)
Liberal Democrats 6% (-28)
(This would be an SNP gain from Labour. Mark Lazarowicz of Labour would lose his seat.)
Edinburgh South :
SNP 37% (+29)
Labour 34% (-1)
Conservatives 16% (-6)
Liberal Democrats 8% (-26)
(This would be an SNP gain from Labour. Ian Murray of Labour would lose his seat.)
