Labour Party, meanwhile, is predicted to secure 22 percent of the first-round votes, overtaking the Scottish Tories who score 21 percent in the poll.
During the previous Scottish local elections, the SNP won 32 percent of the vote, with Labour receiving 20 percent and the Conservatives on 25 percent.
Since the beginning of devolution, only one party has registered above 33 percent of the total vote share at council elections – Donald Dewar’s Scottish Labour Party in 1999.
In both 2012 and 2017 the SNP’s results were 32.3 percent. But an outcome anywhere near 44 percent would represent one of the most dominant performances in recent memory.
