Majority Of UK Voters Back Leaving the European Union

A majority of Britons now favour leaving the European Union amid concerns over immigration, according to a shock poll.

 

The Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday found that if a referendum were held tomorrow 51% would vote to quit the EU against 49% who would vote to remain.

 

The findings contrast with a previous comparable poll carried out in July which has shown comfortable majorities in favour of staying in (54%-46%).
