SNP welcome TNS poll
Welcoming a new poll by TNS showing Nicola Sturgeon has the highest approval rating of any leader north and south of the border, Stewart Hosie, the SNP’s Deputy Leader said:
"These exceptionally strong poll ratings show two things. First, that Nicola Sturgeon is head and shoulders above the other party leaders, both at Westminster and Holyrood.
"And second, the figures suggest that people north and south of the border like what Nicola is saying about how a strong team of SNP MPs, standing up for Scotland, can also contribute to delivering more progressive policies for the benefit of people across the UK."
Approval rating -
Nicola Sturgeon: +33
Nigel Farage: +12
David Cameron: ++7
Ed Miliband: -8
Nick Clegg: -22
