Yesterday, more Scots than ever since universal suffrage was introduced cast a ballot on the matter of independence.

The turnout was itself phenomenal and that potentially implicates a series of questions for the government authorities and citizens. For the time being the sole question is: would this benefit one side or the other? The verdict favored the NO–better together–with a margin little higher than indicated by polls of major polling houses fielded over the last week. This also returns to the point I raised roughly a month ago: evidence from the political science literature suggests ==voters who fail to promptly decide are more likely to vote for the status quo== in referendums like this.
