The Scots do not think there should be a second independence referendum, a poll showed on Sunday, days after Britain voted to leave the European Union despite strong Scottish support for remaining a member of the bloc. The Survation poll showed 44.7 percent of people think Scotland should not conduct a second independence referendum, compared to 41.9 percent in favor of a fresh vote. In September 2014 Scotland rejected independence by 55 percent to 45 percent.
With markets reeling after Britain's vote to leave the European Union, some on Wall Street expect cooler heads to prevail over the next several sessions as investors focus domestically on the outlook for the U.S. economy and company earnings. Globally, the $2.08 trillion in stock market value wiped out in the sell-off marked the largest daily loss ever in dollar terms, according to Standard & Poor's Dow Jones Indices. S&P 500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq index futures were each down about 0.5 percent shortly after 6:15 p.m. New York time (22:15 GMT).
