The proportion of voters who support the idea of a referendum on the final terms of the Brexit deal has overtaken those who do not for the first time, according to a YouGov poll for The Times, Reuters reports.  

Asked whether there should be a referendum on the matter, 42 percent of the 1,653 adults in the UK surveyed said yes, while 40 percent did not agree. The remaining respondents said they didn’t know.

The referendum was supported by 58 percent of Labour voters, 67 percent of Liberal Democrat voters and 21 percent of Conservative voters surveyed by YouGov.

In the Brexit referendum of June 23, 2016, there were 17.4 million votes cast (51.9 percent) in favour of leaving the EU, despite many opinion polls predicting the opposite.

Two years later, the YouGov poll showed that most voters did not change their views on whether to leave the EU – a new referendum would still be close, and it could still go either way: in the event of another Brexit referendum taking place tomorrow, 45 percent said they would vote to remain, 42 would vote leave, 4 percent would not vote and 9 percent said they didn’t know.
