Oh dear, SNP/#YesScot have been caught fibbing again!
SNP/YesScotland published a Panelbase poll yesterday. Along with the results this was also tweeted:

No doubt this was a genuine error or perhaps the SNP/YesScotland plot only refers to Panelbase data. After all, it tends to flatter them a little. This shows Panelbase only data with the SNP/#YesScot trend lines shown in bold.
So no matter how we look at it, SNP/#YesScot have been trying to fool the people of Scotland.
