BBC Radio 5 Live – Brexit Poll Sept 2018

Survey of 1,002 British adults, polled via telephone, on their views of Brexit

  • British adults overall are generally negative about how Brexit is going and its effect on the UK in the future; half of British adults disagree that Brexit will have a positive impact on the UK overall (50%)
  • Eight in ten British adults agree that the government has handled Brexit negotiations badly (79%)
  • Only one-third of British adults expect their household to be better off in 5 years’ time as a result of the UK having left the EU (32%)
  • However, men are more optimistic about their household’s future post-Brexit than women (36% expect their household to be better off compared to 29% of women)
  • Younger Brits feel more negative about the implications of Brexit for travel as three-quarters of 18-34 year olds agree with the statement that travelling across the EU on holiday will be more difficult after Brexit than it is now (73%), compared to just over half of 55+ year olds who think the same (56%)
