The past year of polling for the 2021 Scottish Parliament election suggests Scottish Labour simply isn’t cutting through with voters, and the party has hovered around the 15% support mark since before December 2019’s UK general election.

Two polls conducted in August 2020 give the SNP an all-conquering 30 point lead over their nearest rivals, the Scottish Conservatives, while Scottish Labour languishes in third. The contrast with the UK Labour Party, where Keir Starmer’s leadership has seen gains of around 8 points since April 2020 leaving them near level-pegging with the Conservatives, is stark.
