Support for Scottish independence rose after the British Prime Minister came out in favor of the UK making a clean break with the European Union, a confirmed BMG survey for Herald Scotland .

The survey indicated 49 % of Scots support independence with 51% opposing it, after “don’t know” votes are removed, the newspaper said.

A similar survey conducted last month showed roughly the same result as the 2014 Scottish independence referendum, with 45.5 percent in favor of independence and 54.5 percent against, the newspaper said.

 Scotland’s devolved parliament rejected British leader Theresa May’s plan to exit the European Union in a symbolic, non-binding vote on Tuesday.
