BBC Brexit poll reveals over 20% of Leave voters now support Remain

Date:

At least 20 per cent of Brexit supporters would vote differently if asked now, according to a poll of hundreds of people on BBC Question Time.

Audiences were polled on whether Brexit was the right thing to do, with the results showing that 70 per cent still agreed, 20 per cent would vote differently and 10 per cent were unsure.

The poll was conducted as part of a special episode of the show in which the audience consisted solely of Leave voters.

It was shot in Clacton-on-sea, Essex, on the eve of the seventh anniversary of the EU referendum on June 23, in which the Leave campaign defeated the Remain vote by 52 percent to 48 percent.

The Tendring area of ​​Essex – which includes Clacton – had one of the highest Leave votes in England in the 2016 referendum, with nearly 70 per cent of people voting for Brexit.

One audience member, who admitted he would vote differently now, said: “I don’t see any benefit in it”, while another blamed politicians’ attempts to “frustrate” the process, saying: “We haven’t started yet with Brexit but when will it start?”
