I cannot trust or set my hopes on any polls this time. This vote is fundamentally different. The EU elections could be predicted very easily; not this though.
I think you have a point there as no poll suggested the SNP would get 69 seats in the 2011 election but I'd be surprised if a poll today was 4% wrong

I hope it is 100% no.
That would be funny to see

100%?!?! :eek:
By 7pm apparently. Amazing.

Equally I've heard 90% in Dundee though which is SNP land.

...

Itv coverage is rubbish compared to Sky and BBC so far. Sky just edging it for me so far bar the breaks.

Bookies have lengthened.. 1/16 for NO.

Presumably a rounded-up 100% and not every single voter.

Common misconception. 4 polls in the month leading up put the SNP around 45%. Granted it was a sudden increase and nobody expected the Labour vote to collapse in the way it did which is what pushed the SNP over the line.

BBC putting their referendum coverage on BBC1, News and Parliament, whereas BBC Alba has no referendum coverage currently.

Probably. Its also from polling stations rather than official so spoilt ballots will be in that.

.....

Postal vote turnout in Edinburgh is 89.6%.

Postal vote turnout in Moray is 92%.

Sky coverage definitely the best so far.

Whatever the result, the predicted levels of turnout are extraordinary.

We need to ensure those engaged today remain involved in politics and get their voice heard all the time.
