Emotions mount on final day of Scottish campaign

The Associated Press

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) Excitement and anxiety are mounting in Scotland on the final day of campaigning before an independence referendum.

Supporters of separation feel they are within touching distance of victory, but wonder whether their surge in the polls will be enough.

Voters who want to stay in the United Kingdom fear the country they live in may soon cease to exist.

The campaign has been peaceful, if heated. But the gravity of the imminent decision is hitting home as political leaders make their passionate final speeches on Wednesday.

Cathy Chance, who works for Britain's National Health Service in Edinburgh, says she'll leave Scotland if it becomes independent: "I don't think the world needs another political barrier."

On the other side, Yes campaigner Roisin McLaren says she "can almost taste" independence.
