Chequers and Remain Crushed in New Poll

A new poll by BMG Research for Huffington Post has found that just 16% of Brits favour remaining in the EU when presented with all the options. Even among those who voted Remain in 2016, just 32% support remaining today.

A Canada-style deal was the most popular of all the options with 22% of the country supporting it, ahead of No Deal in second place. Chequers was as unpopular as the Norway option, with both languishing on 11%.

After ERG Vice Chair Mark Francois confirmed that the ERG intended to vote against Chequers no matter what, this is a further sign that a pivot to a Canada-style deal may be May’s most politically viable option. Her comments today that a Canada-style deal would be worse than no deal will not be going down well with her backbenchers…

UPDATE: With the don’t know’s excluded, it becomes even more clear that most people want a clean break.
