Scottish voters split over separation a month before referendum

Two opinion polls show that Scotland's voters are narrowly divided on whether to leave the United Kingdom one month before a referendum.

Sunday's published polls both found that a majority of decided voters want Scotland to stay within the UK alongside England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

But they found support for independence growing ahead of the Sept. 18 vote, and still-undecided voters holding the balance.

A poll for the Scotland on Sunday newspaper put support for UK membership at 47 per cent, up 2 points; support for independence at 38 per cent, up 4 points; and undecided voters at 15 per cent.

Another survey commissioned by the pro-independence campaign found 46 per cent support for the UK, 42 per cent for independence, and 12 per cent undecided.

Both had error margins of 3 percentage points.
