Christopher McLean, of Ipsos Mori Scotland, said: "Almost six years after coming into power at Holyrood, the SNP Government retains the approval of a majority of Scots, good news for the party ahead of their spring conference.
"Satisfaction is particularly high among men and young people, which reflects patterns in voting intention for the SNP and support for independence. However, the relatively low satisfaction among women is further evidence that the SNP need to do more to appeal to female voters."
An SNP spokesman said: "Coming as we prepare for spring conference in Inverness, this latest poll confirms that a clear majority of people in Scotland approve of the Scottish Government's record and vision for Scotland.
"As more and more people come to realise that the only way we can build upon the progress made since devolution is with the full powers of an independent Scotland, we will look to build upon the trust people have placed in us as a government as we seek to secure a Yes vote in September 2014."
