“Welsh independence truly in the mainstream” as new poll puts support of an independent Wales at 32%
The cause of Welsh independence is “truly in the mainstream” the Leader of Plaid Cymru Adam Price has said after a new poll found support for an independent Wales was at 32%.
The latest Welsh Political Barometer Poll, conducted by the Wales Governance Centre, ITV and You Gov, found that 25% supported Welsh independence - an increase of four points since the last poll. With Don't Know excluded, the figure is 32%.
Professor Roger Scully of the Wales Governance Centre said this was the highest level of support yet recorded for Welsh independence
Plaid Cymru Leader Adam Price said the Coronavirus crisis had exposed the “chaos and the inequality” of Westminster.
Mr Price said it was only a vote for Plaid Cymru on the 6th of May next year would offer the prospect of a pro-independence First Minister.
The Plaid Cymru Leader said Wales could become independent within the 2020s but this would only happen by voting Plaid Cymru.
Plaid Cymru Leader Adam Price MS said,
“The cause of Welsh independence is now truly in the mainstream.
“With the Coronavirus crisis making clear the chaos and the inequality that lies at the heart of the Westminster establishment, it is no wonder that we have witnessed such a surge in support for a new and independent Wales – a nation proudly standing on its own two feet and in control of its own future.
“With less than a year until the Senedd elections, a vote for Plaid Cymru on 6th May offers the only prospect of a pro-independence First Minister whose government would deliver the chance for the people of Wales to choose an independent future.
"Wales can become independent nation in the 2020s, but we have to make it happen. Join Plaid Cymru.
