Latest Scotexit YouGov survey,Scottexit Opinion Poll results 2016, Scottish independence referendum
Scotland's nationalist First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said the June 23 vote for Brexit had put Scottish independence back on the agenda just two years after it was rejected in a referendum.
While Britons backed leaving the EU by 52-48 percent, Scots voted by 62-38 percent to remain in the bloc, an outcome Sturgeon argues has changed the political landscape regarding possible Scottish secession.
However according to Saturday's YouGov survey, 53 percent of Scots wanted to stay part of the United Kingdom with 47 percent backing independence.
Even when asked if they would rather stay in the EU but leave the UK, 46 percent of the 1,006 respondents said they wanted to remain in the UK and only 37 percent preferred Scotland becoming an independent nation within the bloc.
