EDINBURGH, Oct. 26 (Xinhua) -- Support for Scotland's independence was put at 29 percent while more than half of voters support keeping Scotland in the UK, shows a new poll.
The result of the YouGov survey, published by the Courier newspaper, put the opposition to Scotland's independence at 55 percent, while the findings are broadly in line with two other polls this month from different organizations, the online Herald Scotland reported on Friday.
More than 1,000 people in Scotland took part in the survey conducted by YouGov, a global market research organization, after the Scottish National Party (SNP)'s autumn conference was held more than one week ago in Perth, a major city in east Scotland.
On the Scottish government's preferred question "Do you agree that Scotland should be an independent country?", 14 percent's response are undecided, while on attitudes to the two main campaigns, Yes Scotland and Better Together, 33 percent of those who are aware of the campaigns, think Yes Scotland demonstrates the best evidence to support its case, compared with 32 percent for Better Together, said the report.
Earlier, two different poll findings separately suggested support for independence stands at 30 percent compared with 58 percent for the Union, and a 28-percent support with a 53-percent opposition.
A recent Panelbase poll put support for independence at 37 percent, rising to 44 percent under the scenario of a Labor government at Westminster, and 52 percent under a Tory government, according to a SNP spokesman.
He added that polls consistently show that a majority of people believe the Scottish government is better at making decisions for Scotland than the UK government, and that most people will vote for independence if they believe they and their families will be better off.
The SNP spokesman also expressed confidence that the Yes campaign can and will win the argument for independence, and that the SNP will win the referendum in autumn 2014.
British Prime Minister David Cameron and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond signed the Edinburgh Agreement earlier this month, allowing Scotland to hold an independence referendum in autumn 2014.
