New MORI poll suggests 54 SNP MPs (that’s 48 new MPs)

Once they are selected, the plan was to include 21 SNP candidates in this research as potentially “winnable” having┬áconsidered┬áthe existing data. But this might need a bit of a rethink and a significant upgrade on the basis of this poll. Remember that the SNP currently only has 6 Westminster MPs.

In case you’re thinking that this might be a rogue poll, it might be of course. It was conducted between 22 and 29 October with the news on 24 October that Johann Lamont was to resign as leader of the Scottish Labour Party just breaking and being assessed. But Ipsos MORI have a good record…

Note that with 1026 participants the margin of error on this poll is only 3%, so clearly something very significant is happening in Scottish politics right now.
