U.K. General Election 2019: Conservatives Headed for a Majority, Exit Poll Shows

That could spell difficulty for Mr. Johnson down a road.

The S.N.P.’s projected win of 55 of Scotland’s 59 seats, a benefit of 20, would surpass all expectations and put a celebration in a position of roughly sum prevalence in Scottish politics. The authors of a exit check warned that their information from Scotland was a slightest extensive, and therefore should be treated with some-more caution.

If a commentary are correct, however, that would meant that once Mr. Johnson breaks a deadlock on Brexit, that seems all yet unavoidable now, he might good confront a flourishing inherent predicament over Scottish independence.

Mr. Johnson is unpopular in Scotland, where his bumbling, upper-class, English persona tends to go down badly. But a Tories had approaching to reason many of their 13 seats there by personification adult their antithesis to Scottish independence, on that open opinion there is about uniformly split.

The exit check suggested, however, that many Scottish electorate placed larger importance on interlude Brexit. With that now certain to proceed, a tensions between London and Edinburgh are roughly certain to increase.

In her initial greeting to a exit poll, Ms. Sturgeon was guarded, arguing that while it suggested a good night for a S.N.P., “it is only an exit check and there are many marginals, so let’s only wait and see.”

She combined in a Twitter post, “What it indicates UK far-reaching yet is grim.”

The result, if it binds up, would be a second best in a S.N.P.’s history, only one brief of a 56 seats it cumulative in 2015 before it fell behind to 35 dual years later.

Mr. Johnson has ruled out a probability of another opinion on Scottish independence, that was deserted in a 2014 referendum. But Ms. Sturgeon, citing a altered resources introduced by Brexit, has demanded a right to reason another vote.
