The new poll shows Nicola Sturgeon's party will win all 59 Scottish seats in the upcoming election.

The SNP could win all 59 Scottish seats in the General Election, new polling data has suggested.

The latest and final Ipsos MORI poll for STV News puts support for Nicola Sturgeon’s party at 54%, up by two percentage points on the last poll, with Labour trailing on 20%, down from 24%.

Support for the Conservatives has increased by five points to 17% while the Liberal Democrats are on 5%, up one point, the Greens are on 2%, down by two points, Ukip are polling at 1%, with support for other parties also at 1%.

Using these figures, the Electoral Calculus website predicts that the SNP would take all 59 seats in Scotland.

It is the latest poll to show a record level of support for nationalists aftera survey by TNS published on Monday put the SNP on 54%.

It recorded support for Labour at 22%, the Tories at 13%, Lib Dems at 6% and the Greens and Ukip both on 2%.

Using the Electoral Calculus seat predictor, the TNS results put the SNP on 57 seats, with one each for Labour and the Lib Dems.

Another TNS poll published today in the Herald newspaper shows record levels of support for Ms Sturgeon across the country.

The snapshot of 1,200 adults in Scotland, England and Wales shows the First Minister has the highest approval rating of the party leaders.

The poll gave Ms Sturgeon a Britain-wide net approval rating of plus 33, a record for TNS.

She is followed by Nigel Farage on plus 12, David Cameron on plus 7, Ed Miliband on minus 8, and Nick Clegg on minus 22.

Ms Sturgeon is top of the polling in every part of the country, leading on plus 30 in north-east England, plus 38 in Wales and the West Country and plus 33 in Greater London.

In Scotland, her approval rating surges to plus 55, where she is the only leader with a positive net rating.
