The latest BMG poll commissioned by Mev Brown, former Chief Spokesman for Business for Britain in Scotland, reveals Scottish voters are ten to one in favour of keeping the pound as Nicola Sturgeon draws up her currency plans for any independence referendum.
The results revealed that 68% of Scots agreed with the statement “Scotland should continue using the pound, rather than creating new Scottish currency”. Just 7% of disagreed with the statement while 25% were uncertain.
A closer look at the data reveals those aged 65 and over are much more in favour of keeping the pound than their younger counterparts with over eight in ten (81%) agreeing with the statement compared with just over half of 25 to 34 year olds (55%).
Even SNP supporters and Yes voters are in favour of keeping the pound, by a margin of 52% to 18% and 55% to 15% respectively.
