Elsewhere, the Conservatives are on 15% (-2), LibDems on 6%, Greens on 3% and Other on 5% (+2).

In 2021, the SNP polled 47.7% on the constituency list, eight points higher than the current polling. 

The polling also asked Scots if they think that the Health Secretary should resign over his parliamentary iPad data roaming bill, and a majority believe that he should.

Holyrood authorities are currently investigating whether or not the Cabinet Secretary broke the ministerial code over the row.

And, 61% of Scots say Matheson should stand down from his post, with more SNP voters from 2021 stating that he should resign - 52% - than that he should continue in the job - 44%. 

The National:

Unsurprisingly, 72% of 2021 Scottish Labour voters and 74% of 2021 Scottish Tory voters said Matheson should resign. 

Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar was the only Scottish politician to return a positive popularity rating (+3), while First Minister Humza Yousaf has a net satisfaction rating of -13. 

Emily Gray, managing director of Ipsos in Scotland, commented: “The Labour Party continues to face a political challenge in Scotland.

"Although the party has made strides in Scotland under Sarwar and Starmer, including the Rutherglen and Hamilton West by-election win in October, this latest poll finds that they remain 10 points behind the SNP when it comes to General Election voting intention.

"Although Humza Yousaf’s party have been having a difficult time of late, with controversy over Michael Matheson’s parliamentary iPad data roaming bill of almost £11,000, they remain out in front when it comes to voter preferences for both Westminster and Holyrood elections.”
