Among people who voted Labour in the Scottish Parliament constituency vote in 2011, a total of 28 per cent are satisfied with Mr Miliband and 40 per cent are dissatisfied.  Among people who voted Lib Dem in the Scottish Parliament constituency vote in 2011, a total of 22 per cent are satisfied with Mr Clegg and 50 per cent are dissatisfied.

SNP Depute Leader and Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:

“These are remarkable figures, which underline the popularity of the First Minister after more than six years in office and the record of delivery of this government.  By contrast, the ratings of the Westminster party leaders are all dire – reinforcing the other key poll finding that people trust the Scottish Government rather than Westminster to take decisions for Scotland by a margin of nearly four-to-one.”
