Majority of Brits now against Brexit and back second EU referendum – Sky Data poll

More than half of Britons are now against Brexit and support a second EU referendum, a Sky Data poll has found.

Just one in seven Britons think the draft Brexit deal proposed by Theresa May is better than either a “no-deal” Brexit or remaining in the EU, a Sky Data poll reveals.

The prime minister warned that these were the only three options available to Britain after concluding negotiations with the trading bloc.

Her cabinet appeared to have backed the draft deal, but several ministers including Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab have since resigned to oppose the proposed deal.

Over half – 54% – would prefer to remain in the EU, while 32% would prefer to leave the EU without a deal – just 14% would choose Brexit on the terms negotiated by the government.

Just over half of Britons – 55% – would also support a referendum choosing between those three options, with 35% opposed and 10% unsure.

Some 44% strongly support such a move.

Mrs May remains the most trusted politician to lead the country to Brexit among the leaders we asked about – but in total, many more people are backing alternative leaders than supporting her.

Three in 10 (31%) think she is the best person to lead the country through Brexit – ahead of Jeremy Corbyn on 24%, Jacob Rees-Mogg on 18%, Boris Johnson on 17% and Dominic Raab on 10%.
