In response to the shock poll, nationalists are now copying the Trump playbook, with Scottish justice minister Humza Yousaf claiming it was “rigged.” 

Whilst today’s poll giving the union a 14 point lead did use ‘remain’ and ‘leave’ phrasing rather than ‘yes’ and ‘no’, the Electoral Commission previously claimed such a difference doesn’t result “in participants changing their voting preference in any way.” If Scotland really wants independence, changing the wording of polls shouldn’t meaningfully influence the result…
