A new Yougov poll published on WaleOnline today has shown a surge in support for an independent Wales. 32%* said they would be certain to vote for independence in a referendum, with 41%* supporting the idea of an independent Wales in the EU if Brexit happens.
Responding to the poll, Siôn Jobbins – the Chair of YesCymru, the campaign for an independent Wales – said:
"This poll has the support for independence at the highest level ever, and clearly shows that the people of Wales are warming towards the idea of Wales becoming an independent nation state just like Ireland, Iceland or Denmark.
"Westminster isn’t working, and people are realising that Wales can do a better job of running its own affairs than being ruled by Westminster.
The third March for Independence will be held in Merthyr on Saturday 7 September. AUOBCymru welcome all who wish to see an independent Wales to join the march, and those interested are encouraged to bring flags, banners, drums and instruments, and to meet from 10.30am on Penderyn Square. The march will start promptly at 12pm. Click here for the full details.

Newly elected YesCymru Chair, Siôn Jobbins, said,
"We've spent months discussing the internal constitution of YesCymru. That's been settled now. From now on, the only constitution YesCymru will be discussing will be the constitution of an independent Wales. The UK is dying, all members and supporters of YesCymru now have to work to make sure that an independent Wales raises from the debris of the British state."
Also here's an article on Nation.Cymru.
YesCymru, the grassroots campaign for Welsh independence, has welcomed new research by Cardiff and Edinburgh universities, which shows that 19% of people in Wales think the country should be independent.
In recent years, polls have suggested that support for independence could have been lower than 10%. But the large sample size, of over two thousand people, shows that support is now much higher, at one in five people.
YesCymru launched the most comprehensive document arguing for Welsh independence ever published in Aberystwyth today.
Increased Tory majority would further boost support new poll finds
