29% Support Welsh Independence according to 'Google Consumer Surveys' Poll

In order to find out the current opinion in Wales on Welsh independence. 'Face for Business' asked 1000 people living in Wales 'Should Wales be an independent country?' between Thursday the 11th, and Sunday the 14th of September 2014. They used 'Google Consumer Surveys' to collect the data.

Here are the full results:

28.9% of people in Wales support Welsh Independence according to this poll.

28.7% of Men and 29.1% of Woman in Wales support Welsh Independence according to this poll.

36.8% of 18-24 year olds in Wales support Welsh Independence, but this falls to 19.4% for the 65+ according to this poll.

This poll comes a few days after a new YouGov poll for ITV Cymru Wales and Cardiff University showed that support for Welsh independence had grown to 20% (Excluding Don't Knows).

These poll results are very encouraging, considering that support for Welsh independence has traditionally hovered around the 10% mark, and that no political party or group are currently making a strong case for Welsh independence (even though Plaid Cymru support independence as a long term aim). It is also extremely encouraging moving forwards that the younger you are, the more likely you are to support Welsh independence.

Following the extremely successful rally in Cardiff on Saturday, where up to a 1,000 people came to show their support for Scottish independence, this is more good news. After the results of the referendum are published on Friday - if it's a YES or a NO - the UK will never be the same again. We will need to start a serious, cross-party, inclusive campaign in favour of Welsh independence if we are ever to reach our aim. These results are a very good foundation to build upon.
