Keep Calm And Carry On

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 implicating a series of questions for the government authorities and citizens, but for the time being the sole question was: would this benefit one side or the other? The verdict favored the “NO”–better together–by a margin little higher than indicated by major polling houses over the last week. And this returns to the point I raised roughly a month ago: the evidence from political science literature suggests that voters who failed to promptly decide are more likely to vote for the status quo in referendums like this.
