Britain would vote to quit EU says new poll

BRITAIN would vote to leave the EU if an in/out referendum was held today, a major new survey has found.

Some 46.6 per cent would vote “out” while just 34.3 per cent would vote “in”, with 19.1 per cent undecided.Among those likely to vote, the gap was starker, with 48.8 per cent opting to leave, compared to 34.7 per cent wanting to stay and 16.5 per cent undecided.

The Survation poll was commissioned by the Freedom Association. Director Rory Broomfield said: “This survey shows that the increasing demands for Britain to pay more money to the EU has resulted in a resurgence in Euroscepticism within Britain.

“The British people are clearly fed up with picking up bills for EU institutions that remain unaccountable to them and do not act in their best interests.”

The survey also found that turnout in a referendum could be as high as 90.1per cent, outstripping the 84.5 percent in September’s Scottish vote.

The poll also reveals that while 65 percent of those who voted Tory in 2010 want to leave the EU, a majority of Labour voters – 44.8 per cent compared to 42.4 per cent – also want to see the UK cut ties with Brussels.
