Biggest Poll on Brexit since referendum
- 26,000 adults surveyed by Savanta ComRes across the UK
- Results shows more than half (54%) of British public support the UK abiding by the referendum result and leaving the EU, regardless of the way they voted in the 2016 Referendum.
- More people’s preferred outcome is now for the UK to leave the European Union (50% v 42% remain).
- However, when the “don’t knows” (of those expressing an opinion) are excluded, over half say their preferred outcome is for the UK to leave the EU (54%) compared to less than half who say their preferred outcome is for the UK to remain in the EU (46%)
- But more people think a no deal is bad for the UK than good.
- Big Brexit divides across age groups and also Scotland, London and Northern Ireland out of kilter with the rest of the UK
- Poll commissioned for Live Brexit Referendum: Do We Want No Deal? (Channel 5, Wednesday 16 October at 9pm)
