48 HOURS TO GO?: Catalans would secede within two days of Yes vote

catalanA CATALAN government opinion poll has shown that people in the region are evenly split over the question of seceding from Spain.

The Opinion Studies Center poll showed that 45.1% of those asked oppose independence while 44.9% favoured it, with the rest still unsure.

The figures mean the amount of people in favour of leaving Spain has dropped after the last poll in July gave the pro-independence camp a 47.7 – 42.4 lead.

The dip in support comes a year before the regional government has said it will begin breaking away from Madrid.

The survey interviewed 1,500 people between October 17 and November 3, with a 2.5% margin of error.

    I think that It are waste of time and money.
