A survey completed by Panelbase for the Sunday Times and Real Radio Scotland found some interesting answers from its participants.
Cheeringly, of those who were decided about independence, 47% were for, and 53% against. Of the entire sample 21% had not made up their minds, 37% were for and 42% against.
