A new opinion poll, conducted by Savanta ComRes between 23 - 28 April, has revealed that 32% of the Welsh public would support independence, once 'undecided' voters are excluded.


The new findings are consistent with a series of opinion polls that show around a third of the population supports independence.


ITV reporter Paul Brand said: "The poll shows support for Welsh independence continues to solidify, at around a third of the population."


The poll asked respondents how they would vote if an independence referendum were held tomorrow, with the question "Should Wales be an independence country?"


Excluding 'undecided':


Yes: 32%

No: 68%


With 'undecided':


Yes: 27%

No: 58%

Undecided: 14%
