You’ve heard me moaning about the electoral turnout before. One thing I find particularly telling is the way news reports often ignore this hugely important factor when reporting election results, just like they usually ignore the percentage of “don’t knows” when reporting opinion polls.
Please do read and share the following article by James with other supporters of Scottish independence, I honestly believe this is crucial to the Scottish independence cause, and we’re overlooking it, for the most part.
“If there is to be a second independence referendum – and if there is to be any expectation of victory for the Yes campaign – then the votes of low-income Scots will be vital.”
“The incredible wave of engagement which swept Scotland two years ago has broken. We are, in terms of electoral participation, pretty much back where we started.”
