Second poll suggests electorate backs new Brexit vote

"Thirteen percent opted for the government's deal".

With less than eight months left until Britain is due to leave the European Union, there is little clarity about how trade will flow as British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is grappling with a rebellion in her party, struggles to strike a deal with the bloc.

When asked to choose between three options - Mrs May's deal, a no deal or staying in the European Union - 48pc said they would prefer to stay in the European Union, 27pc wanted to leave with no deal and 13pc would opt for the government's deal.

Sky Data interviewed a nationally representative sample of 1,466 Sky customers online 20-23 July 2018.

She must find a way to strike a deal with the European Union, which has already rejected her preferred plan on trade, then sell that deal to her deeply divided Conservative Party, before putting it to a vote in Parliament.


Talking to Julia Hartley-Brewer on talkRADIO, Femi Oluwole from Out Future, Our Choice, which advocates for a people's vote on the final deal, said: "Nobody thinks this is going well as is shown, we have now have a majority of the population in favour of a vote on the deal".

It also found that 66% of Remain voters support a second referendum and 21% oppose, while 66% of Leave voters oppose and 19% support.

Matteo Salvini, Italy's right-wing interior minister and leader of anti-immigrant Lega Nord, has claimed that Brussels is trying to "swindle" London in their Brexit negotiations, telling Theresa May to walk away without a deal.

Since March, the proportion of those satisfied with Mrs May's performance has fallen to 24 per cent, down 17 percentage points, the Sky poll showed.

Voters were split on whether Brexit would be good or bad for the country, with 40 per cent saying it would be good and 51 per cent saying it would be bad.
