A further 12 per cent of Leave voters either would not vote (3 per cent) or now don’t know (9 per cent).

Commenting on the polling results, CEO of Best for Britain Eloise Todd said:

“The possibility of Brexit is sharpening the British public’s minds, and now there is a decisive majority in favour of a final say for the people of our country on the terms of Brexit. This poll is a turning point moment.

“The only democratic way to finish this process is to make sure the people of this country - not MPs across Europe- have the final say, giving them an informed choice on the two options available to them: the deal the government brings back and our current terms. 

“We now need MPs across Parliament, from Corbyn’s front bench to the moderates of the Conservative party to do what’s best for Britain and back a people’s vote on the terms.”
