Some families in the continental ukraine are considering their relatives in the crimea as traitors. They've also removed them from social network accounts, email contacts, phone books etc. I thought that only ukrainians are capable to think this way, but it seems that idiots are the same everywhere Grin

Unfortunately, the generation gap is quite evident in this referendum. The elderly people are like 30% for YES vs 70% for NO, while the youngest age group is something like 65% for YES vs 35% for NO. It was a master stroke from the SNP to grant voting rights to those children in the 16-17 year age group. If they were excluded from the polls, then NO would have held a comfortable lead even now.

On a matter as time sensitive as this, the old folks should not vote at all. Let the younger generations have their say in what kind of world they will live in for the rest of their lives. The older generation is directly responsible for what ails much of society today. Yes, I'm playing generation politics here which is unfair and discriminatory but I don't care.

Although I agree with you, in normal cases the voter turnout among the elderly is much higher than that among the younger voters. The elderly do eke out time to go to a polling booth and cast their vote, while most of the youngsters will be busy updating their Facebook status and playing Xbox. Although the enthusiasm is quite high among the Scottish youngsters right now, I don't think their turnout will match that of the oldies.

It would be better to add one or two simple logical and arithmetic tasks into the ballot. It would allow us to examine the dependences between (%, turnout) and iq .

Anyone want to place some bets on this? The No side has better odds right now than betfair.

Seems like people that are actually willing to put coin down are expecting 'No'.

I would agree that this is the most fair, however the opposite will likely happen. At least in the US, the younger generation generally votes in lower numbers and the older generation will generally be the most active voters.

I'd expect the No vote to be somewhat higher than the No opinion polls, as I think the No demographic is more likely to actually vote.
It is be close either way though, which could be problematic in itself.
If the result is within a % or two either way, the losing side will claim that the winning side has no real mandate.

If that is the case, then the margin can get to two figures. The latest opinion polls from Survation places NO at 52% and YES at 48%. But given the fact that the elderly people are more likely to vote, IMO the final margin will be something like 55% vs 45%. Also, the NO camp is mobilizing the immigrants and ethnic minorities all around Scotland.

You do like to get the racist angle in whenever you can, don't you?
I could just as well say that the YES camp are mobilizing the zenophobes and racists all around Scotland.
And neither statement would give a true picture of what is happening.

Let's get rid of voting altogether. Go for common law which says freedom for everyone in every way as long as the freedom doesn't:
1. Harm anybody;
2. Damage anyone's property;
3. Break a contract.
