New Poll Shows Majority Of Tory Voters Support Second Referendum
poll’s result reflects an awareness of how much the Government has already sacrificed vital London interests in trade and financial services to secure its hardline version of Brexit

A large majority of Britons who backed the Prime Minister at the last election, support another referendum on her Brexit deal, a new poll shows.

The Survation poll studied more than 1,400 Conservative voters who gave Theresa May a mandate to pursue her Brexit plan at the last election on June. The result proves the majority of them back a second national vote once the terms of withdrawal are clear.

According to the poll, a huge number of Tory voters in London from 2015 and 2017 backed a second referendum.

The study, commissioned by the Conservative grassroots group Citizens for Britain, asked Conservative voters who turned out for the PM in 2017 to what extent they would support a proposal for a referendum on whether to accept or reject the deal Theresa May strikes with Brussels.

Totally, 42.7% of the voters said they would support it, 19.5% “strongly” and 23.2% “somewhat”, although 34.6% were against the idea, 23.2% strongly and 11.4% somewhat. Around 14.3% were indifferent, while 9.1% did not know.

“This poll shows that even Tory voters expect a final say on the Brexit deal.” Chairman Simon Allison said: “These results must give Theresa May very real pause for thought if she plans to ram home a Brexit deal without either a free vote by MPs or a new popular vote.”

Although the data collected from more than 1,500 Tory voters from across the 2015 and 2017 elections returned similar results, but London’s support for a second referendum apparently raised.

The poll revealed almost 61.2% prefer another national vote, 26.9% strongly and 34.4% somewhat, and 25.3% opposed it, 5.2% “somewhat” and 20.1% “strongly”.

Allison said: “These findings are potentially ominous for Conservative prospects in this May’s London elections and surely reflect an awareness of how much the Government has already sacrificed vital London interests in trade and financial services to secure its hardline version of Brexit.”

“Conservative MPs, especially those in the capital, should take notice.” he warned.
