The survey on whether Britain should leave the European Union has found that 55 per cent of the voters would choose to remain in the EU and 45 per cent to leave if there was another vote Brexit referendum.
The poll was conducted after the ex-Ukip leader Nigel Farage called for a second referendum. During the first Brexit referendum in 2016, 52 per cent chose to leave in contrast to 48 per cent who voted to remain.
The findings revealed a shift in public opinion to give Remain backers their biggest lead since the first referendum, with 51 per cent favouring Remain and 41 per cent backing Leave.
Recently, Mr Farage said it may be time to hold a second referendum on Brexit to put an end to the “moaning” of politicians who have not accepted the previous vote.
The architects of Brexit said the leading political figures who have been arguing against Brexit would “never, ever, ever” stop fighting it and so the best way to draw a line under the issue could be a second public vote.
“They will go on whingeing and whining and moaning all the way through this process.” Mr Farage added: “So maybe – just maybe – I’m reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership.”
The ComRes survey for the Mirror found that if there were a second referendum, 51 per cent would vote to remain in the EU and 43 per cent to leave.
The survey found that among Brexit supporters, 95 per cent were opposed to a rerun of the 2016 vote, while 77 per cent of Remain voters were in favour of another referendum.
About Two-thirds of Brits (65%) lacked confidence that the Prime Minister Theresa May can secure a good Brexit deal, with 30% very or fairly confident.
The survey also revealed that 75 per cent of Labour voters would back remain with only 25 per cent for leave, while among Conservative voters 30 per cent would vote remain and 70 per cent leave.
