Poll exposes BBC claims that Scottish Tory leader most popular

Nicola SturgeonEditor’s note :  Those of you that have had to suffer propaganda claims from the BBC that the Tory leader was the most popular politician in Scotland, even though you know they had no basis in reality, will be interested in Lord (Tory) Ashcroft’s poll.


NICOLA Sturgeon is the only UK politician to enjoy a positive approval rating in Scotland, according to a new poll, while it found Theresa May’s unpopularity was highest among Scots.

However, when voters were asked across the whole of the UK, who would make the best prime minister, Mrs May came out with a 37-point lead over her Labour rival Jeremy Corbyn; 55 points to 18.

The survey, funded by Lord Ashcroft, the Conservative donor and business tycoon, also found high support across the UK for German Chancellor Angela Merkel – the highest mean rating of 50.1 per cent was in Scotland – and low support for US President Donald Trump – the lowest mean rating of 20.1 per cent was also found in Scotland.

The poll, taken between March 21 and 28, involved 10,153 people across the UK and 906 in Scotland, ranking individual politicians on a score from 0 to 100, where zero meant terrible and 100 meant excellent.

In Scotland, the First Minister polled the highest with 53 per cent scoring her with 51 or more and 42 per cent scoring her 50 or less, giving her a net poll rating of +11.
