Latest IPOS Mori Brexit poll sees Remain leading with 55%
London Evening Standard just released the results 18 May 2016
- Leave 37%
Says the paper:
"This is mainly due to a marked shift among Conservative supporters. The Tory swing suggests the Prime Minister's intense campaigning is having a significant impact on his party's followers.
However, Labour supporters are less likely to vote - which explains why Mr Cameron phoned new Mayor of London Sadiq Khan a week ago with a plea to help boost turnout among young people and Labour voters. Among other key findings:
- On the crucial question of the economy, people believe by almost two to one (49 per cent to 26 per cent) that Britain would be worse off for the first five years outside the EU.
- But when asked how the UK would fare after 10 or 20 years, they think that on balance the country would be better off.
- 46 per cent think their own standard of living will be the same in or out of the EU. Some 29 per cent fear they would be worse off, while 18 per cent feel they would be more prosperous.
- Boris Johnson's claim that public services like the NHS would be better outside the EU is backed by just a third of respondents, indicating that public scepticism runs both ways.
- By a big margin, people think Britain would lose influence in the world if it were to leave the European Union
