- When we last asked a roughly comparable question, Theresa May’s Brexit deal had the support of 26 per cent of our panel members. That’s now down to 13 per cent. Doubtless part if not most of the reason is its defeat by a record margin in the Commons this week. The Prime Minister may believe it can be revived. This finding suggests Party members believe that it can’t.
- Well over two in five respondents say that the deal is not acceptable – rejecting it entirely. The total is not that far off half.
- None the less, two in five replies also say that the deal would be acceptable were the UK to have the right to leave the backstop unilaterally. Add the 40 per cent concerned to that 13 per cent, and May wins a majority for such an amended deal among our members’ panel. But one almost as tight as the referendum result.
