Podcast: The final polls (before the one that counts)

With less than 24 hours to go until the Scottish Parliament election, Sir John Curtice, Ian Montagu, Alex Scholes, and Claire Elliott take a look at the final polls of the campaign. They discuss the prospects of an overall SNP majority at Holyrood, look at where the two major Unionist parties stand ahead of the vote, and examine the potential consequences of the outcome of this crucial ballot. They also have an in-depth chat with Alex about his latest analysis paper, written together with John, which investigates the links between national identity, social values, and support for both the SNP and independence.
