Read the background information carefully, before proceeding.
The Economist reports pro-union forces ahead and discusses the potential impact of undecided voters towards a Yes-vote. 
Two polls just two weeks before the referendum point to narrowing gap: 
- The Sunday Times even sees Yes ahead with 51 vs 49 % with a 2 % margin of error. However, the same research institue, Yougov, saw a gap of 22 % just one month before which raises some questions about reliability of their forecasts.
- At the same time, a poll by ‘Yes Scotland’ itself still sees "No" leading with 52% to 48% but also points to a close result.
CNN reports 55.35% for No and 44.65% for Yes with a very high participation of 84.6 %.
