New Brexit Poll Shows Increase in Support for Remaining in the European Union

A poll for The Independent by BMG Research has indicated an increase in support for remaining in the European Union, despite the recent agreement reached to progress the talks on the departure of the UK.

The poll showed that 51% wanted to remain in the European Union compared to 41% who wanted to leave. The poll is the strongest result for the Remain position since the referendum to leave the European Union was held in June 2016.
