Nicola Sturgeon approval rating plummets as voters reject new independence bid
Daily Express says NICOLA STURGEON has been First Minister of Scotland since 2014 but voters are increasingly turning their backs on the Scottish National Party Leader according to polls. How popular is Ms Sturgeon and what does it mean for Scottish independence?
Nicola Sturgeon made a new case for Scottish independence this week and it is expected she will push for another referendum soon. In 2014 Scots rejected independence at the ballot box but it remains the long-term aim of the Scottish National Party (SNP).
The SNP hold the most seats in Scottish Parliament and secured a landslide victory in the 2015 general election winning 56 seats out of 59 available.
The victory gave the Scottish Government a mandate for independence but the campaign was ultimately a failure.
But over the past few years the popularity of Ms Sturgeon among voters in the UK and Scotland has been falling.
