We asked Brits through our YouGov survey how they would vote if given the choice now of remaining in the EU or leaving on the terms set out in Theresa May’s deal. Of the people who confirmed they would vote, and currently have a preference, 61% stated they wanted the UK to remain in the EU.
This result isn’t surprising when seen alongside the shock losses that both the main parties have faced in recent local elections. With the Liberal Democrats positioning themselves as the party fighting for an ‘Exit from Brexit’, their success at the polls would suggest that the public have had enough of the current mess. Something which is clearly reflected in our survey data.
Confidence in the Government appears to have slipped to an all-time low, as they continue to fail to find a way to resolve the current impasse. In light of this, our YouGov survey asked the public whether they would rather remain in the EU, accept Theresa May’s deal or exit the EU with no deal.
Given these choices
Clearly people are looking for an end to the matter but would prefer taking the drastic step of leaving the EU without a negotiated deal rather than accept the compromise of the current deal on the table.
It seems clear from this result that the majority of people don’t have confidence in the Government to negotiate the right deal for the UK and don’t believe that the deal that’s currently on the table is the best way to go. The fact that 3 times as many people would support leaving the EU with no deal, despite all the financial warnings of the effect that this could have on the economy, is a very clear indicator that Brits have lost trust in the whole process.
In a separate opinion poll, we asked members of the public for their views on why they think people may change their vote if a second referendum is held.
The most common responses we received were:
There seems to be growing pressure to consider a second referendum, something that is now being actively campaigned for by the Lib Dems and many in the Labour Party. However, whether the Government will acknowledge the growing support for a new vote remains to be seen.
