A new opinion poll, conducted by Savanta ComRes between 29 April - 4 May, has revealed that 35% 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 support for independence oscillating in the mid-30% range.


The new poll shows a 3% point increase in support for independence when compared to the previous ComRes poll.


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' (with changes on previous poll):

Yes: 35% (+3)

No: 65% (-3)


With 'undecided' (with changes on previous poll):

Yes: 30% (+3)

No: 55% (-3)

Undecided: 15% (+1)
