The SNP budget was voted down and Alex Salmond threatened to resign. Would you prefer another election or for the parliament to determine the next government?

Question details

"As you may be aware the SNP government’s budget bill was voted down this week. Alex Salmond has threatened to resign as First Minister if it is voted down again and has suggested there may have to be a new election for the Scottish parliament. If the budget bill is voted down again and Alex Salmond resigns as first minister, would you prefer to have the chance to vote in a new election for the Scottish parliament to determine which party runs the Scottish government, or would you prefer to leave it to the political parties to decide themselves whether Alex Salmond, Labour leader Iain Gray, Liberal Democrat leader Tavish Scott or Conservative leader Annabel Goldie should lead the Scottish government?"
