European Flag

The latest ‘Britain Uncovered’ poll suggests that there is a clear demand for an in/out referendum and that most Brits would vote to leave the EU.

The ‘Britain Uncovered’ survey asked respondents about a variety issues, some political and others personal. One issue asked about was Europe, and in particular the EU.

An EU referendum could come about as a result of the election in 18 days so the survey offers an insight into how Brits feel about the issue.

When asked about whether or not there should be an in/out referendum, the poll produced the following results:

  • 47% said ‘yes, definitely’
  • 29% said ‘yes, probably’
  • 14% said ‘no, probably not’
  • 9% said ‘no, definitely not’

The poll suggests a clear and strong demand for an EU referendum.

As for how people would vote the poll suggests that more people would vote to leave than vote to stay, however, 17% said they did not know how they would vote.

  • 28% said they would definitely vote to leave
  • 18% said they would probably vote to leave
  • 20% said they would probably vote to remain
  • 18% said they would definitely vote to remain
  • 17% said they did not know

Therefore, the poll indicates that 46% would likely vote to leave, ahead of the 38% in disagreement. If those results were repeated in a referendum, Britain would be set to leave the union.

An EU referendum could come about as a result of the election. The polls suggest that many voters are undecided, in good news for parties on both sides of the divide.

And whilst the poll does give the edge to those wanting to leave the EU, the more intriguing aspect is that whichever way voters feel on the EU a significant majority want a say.
