Our latest poll carried out online among a nationally representative sample of UK adults 16th-17th January 2019 on behalf of the Sunday Telegraph reveals
- When presented with a series of possible Brexit outcomes, fewer than one in ten (7%) Britons wanted the Prime Minister’s deal that was presented to Parliament and was overwhelmingly rejected by MPs on Tuesday night. The preferred outcome right now is another referendum (36%) or to leave with no deal (24%). Leaving with no deal is twice as popular among the elderly as it is the young.
- Those who voted to leave at the referendum in 2016 are significantly more likely to prefer the no deal (46%) option that any other. Remainers prefer a second referendum (63%) in the hope the result will change.
- Overall 21% support the UK Government’s deal, 54% oppose it.
- If the UK were to have another referendum, our survey reveals that in a chaotic week for British politics, remain currently has a slight lead over leave (48% – 42% in this survey, or 53% – 47% among those expressing a vote). Those who did not vote in 2016 are 2-1 likely to vote remain next time should they decide to turn out.
