But by 46% to 30% they’d back government if it proposed a second referendum
There’s a new 1,507 sample Survation poll, restricted just to GE2015/GE2017 Conservative voters, which seeks to get their views on Brexit and related issues. Fieldwork took place last week.
It appears that the sample was chosen by getting back to those who had participated in Survation polls ahead of the two previous elections. It was commissioned by a body called Citizens for Britain which is a grass roots organisation of stop Brexit Tories.
I have highlighted here four of the key findings. I assume that the data from the poll will appear on the Survation website in the next day or two.
The big picture from the numbers is that a significant number of CON voters are committed to leaving the EU whatever the consequences.
There is a second referendum question asking how those sampled would view such a move if this is what the government wanted. The phraseology makes it difficult to make comparisons with other second referendum polling.
