People Who Want Scotland To Leave The UK Just Won A Huge Victory

• Business Insider

A post-debate poll by The Guardian showed Alex Salmond, leader of the Scottish National Party (SNP) and head of the Yes Scotland campaign that supports independence, winning the argument against Alistair Darling, leader of the Better Together campaign that opposes independence.

A Twitter poll taken by Sky News also saw Salmond coming out ahead. There were "more than 2,000 retweets for a Salmond win, compared to under 500 claiming Darling had topped the debate," the news outlet said. 

This would be an important victory for Salmond, who was viewed to have lost the first debate on Aug. 5.

The 90-minute debate from Glasgow centered on three key issues, currency, oil reserves in the North Sea, and the future powers of the National Health Service.
