Poll: Remainers Hit Leavers By Ten Points, The Biggest Lead Since The 2016 Referendum
"They are now overwhelmingly in favour of remaining in the EU, by a margin of more than four to one"

A new survey by BMG Research showed 51 per cent of the British public now back staying in the EU, while 41 per cent want to leave.

The poll found the Remain lead rises to 11 points which is the biggest gap since the June 2016 Referendum.

Last week, the Prime Minister suffered a humiliating defeat from 11 Conservative MPs in the House of Commons while trying to pass her key piece of Brexit legislation.

Theresa May had been forced to accept changes to the EU Withdrawal Bill to guarantee Parliament a “meaningful” vote on any deal the government agrees with Brussels.

After the rebellion, the latest poll also shows that the voters are turning their backs on Brexit. When some 1,400 voters were asked whether the UK should remain a member of the European Union, or leave, 51 per cent backed Remain, and 41 per cent backed Leave. 7 per cent said “don’t know” and 1 per cent didn’t answer.

When those 7 percent who said “don’t know” were either pushed to answer or excluded, 55.5 per cent backed Remain and 44.5 backed Leave.

Dr Michael Turner, the BMG Research head of polling said: “The last time Leave polled ahead of Remain was in February 2017, and since then there has been a slow shift in top-line public opinion in favour of remaining in the EU.”

“Our polling suggests that about a year ago, those who did not vote in the referendum were broadly split, but today’s poll shows that they are now overwhelmingly in favour of remaining in the EU, by a margin of more than four to one.”, Mr Turner added.
