With LibDems slipping further in the opinion polls and Labour continuing to slide too could we see Green MSPs elected on the list for the Highlands and Islands at the Holyrood elections in 2016? According to a TNS poll support for the SNP is at 60% in the constituencies but on the lists things are slightly different:
"The survey shows that 50% intended to back the SNP across the eight regions, followed by Labour (19%), the Conservatives (14%), the Greens (10%), Liberal Democrats (5%), UKIP (2%) and others (2%). In 2011 the distribution of votes in this section of the poll were SNP 44%, Labour 26%, Conservatives 12%, Liberal Democrats 5%, Greens 4% and UKIP 1%."
The Greens are certainly hopeful locally. Could it be Greens and Tories making up the biggest opposition groups in the Scottish Parliament next year if the LibDems and Labour continue to fade?
