The poll cited by the Guardian leaves the pro-independence option second with 47%.
Official results, however, are not expected before Friday morning, with the final declaration of authorities in Edinburgh expected between 06:30 and 07:30 GMT.
Some 97% of the electorate (also constituting 4.3 out of 4.3 million Scottish citizens), an unprecedented number of any type of poll in Scotland, are registered to vote.
After weeks of surveys showing the « Yes » and « No » camps are almost tied, many have described the ongoing vote as « too close to call ».
Previous YouGov polls have varied in their results, with the figure of those wishing that Scotland break away swinging between 48 and 52 percent.
Our Comment. A misopportunity. Highly regrettable. But this is DEMOCRACY and DEMOCRACY is the winner. Scottishs were not ready. So next vote in a century. Perhaps. We were really eager to see something DIFFERENT, CREATIVE AND NEW. Rendez-vous elsewhere. Anytime soon.
