There have been a series of other setbacks including NatWest confirming it will have to move its headquarters to England if Scotland does break away – while Ms Sturgeon has struggled to explain how she would protect critical trade with Britain.
The research for ITV’s Good Morning Britain found Scots would reject independence by a margin of 53-47, once ‘don’t know’ responses are excluded.
SNP support was on 47 per cent for the constituency element of the elections, down three points on the previous week.
The Tories and Labour were tied in second on 21 per cent for that contest.
In the ‘list’ section of the vote, SNP backing was up two points on 37 per cent, while the Conservatives were also up two on 22 per cent and Labour was down four on 18 per cent.
Mr Salmond’s Alba Party appears to be bombing, with just 2 per cent support.
According to Election Pollings swingometer, those figures would result in the SNP losing one seat overall compared to 2016 – short of a majority with 62 seats.
However, Ms Sturgeon’s blushes could be spared as their pro-independence partners the Greens look set to gain five more seats than they had five years ago.
