EDINBURGH, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Different poll results have forecast opposite outcome of the Scottish independence referendum 2014 on Yes or No Campaign, the local media reported on Monday.
The latest poll conducted by Panelbase and commissioned by the ruling Scottish National Party showed that Yes for independence side is a percentage point clear of the pro-union campaign, at 44 percent to 43 percent, with just over a year to go before the referendum scheduled on Sept. 18, 2014, while the undecided voters were at 13 percent, the online Scotsman newspaper reported.
The poll was sampled between Aug. 23 to 28 August, among 1,043 people aged 18 and over in Scotland, which put the Nationalist side in the lead for the first time since the referendum campaign got underway.
The Panelbase poll result was published on Monday and followed a separate poll at the weekend by YouGov which gave the No side a 30-percentage point lead at 59 percent to 29 percent.
As an international internet-based market research firm founded in Britain in May 2000, YouGov on Sunday published its latest poll result, which showed that those intending to vote No had increased by four percentage points, while support for independence remained the same and the number of "don't knows" fell from 14 percent to 10 percent in the past 10 months. The poll also showed that 2 percent chose not to vote.
YouGov's survey of 1,171 Scottish adults carried out last month was commissioned by the DevoPlus campaign, which believes that the Unionist parties should work together to offer a more powerful Scottish Parliament in the event of a No vote.
British Prime Minister David Cameron and Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond signed the Edinburgh Agreement in October 2012, allowing Scotland to hold an independence referendum in autumn 2014.
