Polls Show Scots Becoming More Skeptical About Independence

Wochit
Scots are becoming more skeptical about the idea of Scotland becoming independent of the United Kingdom, two polls showed on Sunday, delivering a setback to nationalists who want the small country to call off its 307-year-old union with England. The polls were published on the eve of the first full cabinet meeting to be held in Scotland by Prime Minister David Cameron's government, a move meant to demonstrate his commitment to keeping the oil-rich nation in the UK. Scots will decide whether to break from the UK in a referendum on September 18, with the pro-independence Scottish National Party trying to persuade them they would be freer and more prosperous on their own, a claim Cameron rejects.
