EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) Two opinion polls show that Scotland's voters are narrowly divided on whether to leave the United Kingdom one month before a referendum.

Sunday's published polls both found that a majority of decided voters want Scotland to stay within the UK alongside England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

But they found support for independence growing ahead of the Sept. 18 vote and still-undecided voters holding the balance.

A poll for the Scotland on Sunday newspaper put support for UK membership at 47 percent, up 2 points; support for independence at 38 percent, up 4 points; and undecided voters at 15 percent.

Another survey commissioned by the pro-independence campaign found 46 percent support for the UK, 42 percent for independence, and 12 percent undecided.

Both had error margins of 3 percentage points.
