In my work place, mainly English and almost all higher rate tax payers, at least four people have said they'd voted no last time but would be yes next time. Anyone else have a feel for whether there's been a shift to yes lately, either family, work, or friends?

@Gazzz my partner was a firm No last time but he voted SNP at the EU election and at the GE, he's 100% Yes now ☺️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

@Gazzz wife voted no, son just missed out by 2 weeks, both now yes. 6 best friends all yes, 2 were no 2014. 6 best family couples were were 8 no & 4 yes & now 11 yes & 1 yes if EU membership guaranteed. I genuinely feel that the polls are not at all representative. I know of no-one who has switched from yes to no.
In 2014 I forecast that 35% yes in the Scottish Borders would have seen yes win nationwide. Iirc it was 32% - 38% voted SNP last week. Take from that what you will.

@bordersbankie sounds very promising. I agree the polls are under representative, based upon the shifts I've seen and heard of. Thanks for the detailed reply!

@Gazzz
Hearing it more from those who were No and have said they’ll vote Yes next time. Most of them cite Boris as the reason they changed their minds. At least he’s good for something.

@Gazzz With me most colleagues have been in oil and away a lot, not voted. Most saying they will in indy ref 2 and be yes.
