LONDON — Support for Brexit has fallen to its lowest point since the referendum, according to a new poll.
With less than a year and a half to go until Britain leaves the EU, a new YouGov poll for the Times finds that just 42% of voters now think Britain was right to back Brexit, with 47% saying it was wrong.
This is the lowest level of support YouGov has recorded for Brexit since Britain voted to leave in June 2016.
The poll finds significant numbers of Brexit voters have changed their mind. Seven per cent of Leave voters now say they were wrong to back Brexit with a further 7% saying they don’t know.
As Brexit negotiations hit “deadlock,” over Britain’s divorce bill, the poll also found a growing majority of people now believe the government are handling negotiations badly.
64% say May’s government are mishandling talks with just 21% saying they are going well.
