NEW Westminster General Election polling has painted an image of where Scotland’s parties stand on the day First Minister Humza Yousaf announced his resignation.

In new research published on Monday afternoon, YouGov found that Labour had a minor lead over the SNP in Westminster polling – by 34% to 33%. The Tories were trailing far behind in third place on just 14%.

However, in Holyrood polling the SNP had a lead over Labour in both constituency voting and the regional list.

The YouGov survey found that, in Holyrood constituencies, 36% of Scots said they would back the SNP against 32% who said they would vote Labour. The Tories were well behind on 16%, the LibDems on 9%, the Greens 3%, and “other” on 4%.

In Holyrood regional list votes, the SNP were on 31% to Labour’s 28%. The Tories were on 17%, the LibDems and Greens both on 8%, and Reform and Alba both on 3%.

On Scottish independence voting intention, the YouGov poll found a lead for the Union, which was on 54% to 46% for a Yes vote.

The YouGov study interviewed 1043 Scots aged 16 or over from April 26-29.

All fieldwork was completed before Yousaf's resignation was confirmed, YouGov said.

The polling found that Yousaf did not enjoy popular support and most members of the public were hoping to see him ousted as first minister (by 55% to 24%).

Among people who voted SNP in 2019, Yousaf had 41% backing him against 40% who wanted to see him displaced.

YouGov further reported that "dissatisfaction with Humza Yousaf had shot up ahead of his resignation", finding a seven-point decline in people who approved of his work (to 20%) and a 12-point uptick in those who disapproved (to 67%).

The net satisfaction rating of -47 gave Yousaf by far the weakest score among Scottish party leaders. Scottish Labour's Anas Sarwar scored 4, while Scots Tory Douglas Ross was on -27, and Green co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater on -29.

Yousaf's resignation followed a crisis sparked by his decision to end the Bute House Agreement with Harvie and Slater's party.

However, asked if Yousaf had been right to end the SNP-Green deal, a plurality of voters said he had. In total, 37% said it was the right decision, 27% the wrong decision, and 36% did not know.
