THE SNP are set to claim a landslide majority in Renfrewshire at the General Election, according to a poll carried out by The Gazette.

The study showed readers are overwhelmingly backing both Mhairi Black and Gavin Newlands to retain their seats when voters go to the polls in a fortnight.

Almost three-quarters of those who took part said they intend to vote for Nicola Sturgeon’s party.

Meanwhile, 14 per cent said they would back the Conservatives and seven per cent chose Labour.

The survey suggests the Liberal Democrats could finish in fourth place with five per cent of the vote, which would be the party’s biggest share in either seat since Ruaraidh Dobson claimed 10 per cent in Paisley and Renfrewshire North in 2010.

The poll of more than 1,700 readers also found that three per cent would have backed Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party if possible.

However, this is now irrelevant in both Renfrewshire seats, as the party failed to field a candidate in either.

If the results are reflected in next month’s election, it would represent another blow to the Labour Party in its former stronghold, with its vote predicted to fall for the third election running.

The findings of our poll, conducted between November 6 and 23 on our website, suggest a similar result to other pre-election analysis.

As previously reported by The Gazette, political consultancy tool Electoral Calculus has tipped the SNP to retain both Renfrewshire seats.

It was predicted Mr Newlands will hold onto his Paisley and Renfrewshire North seat with 39.7 per cent of the vote – up from 37.4 per cent in 2017.

And Ms Black was tipped to dominate for the SNP in Paisley and Renfrewshire South, with a predicted 42.9 per cent of the vote
