Brexit poll: Nearly a third of people are still undecided on how they will vote

A fresh poll shows that up to a third of British people are still unsure about how they will vote in the approaching EU referendum – demonstrating that it is really all to play for.

The research, put together by Future Thinking, says 29% of respondents have yet to come to a decision about how to vote in the June 23rd referendum.

The campaign to remain in the 28-member union is in the lead with a 32% share of the vote, compared to the campaign to leave which is on 29%.

With less than four months to go until Britain’s fate is decided, the amount of voters who are yet to be won over underlines just how crucial the upcoming weeks of campainging could prove to be.

The results also illustrate a clear difference in opinion between the generations.

Almost 47% of 18-24 year olds want Britain to remain in the EU compared to just 12% who want to pull out, while 44% of people aged 65 and above will vote for the country to leave compared to 29% who’ll vote to remain.

Interestingly, the will to leave the union is significantly stronger among men.

The survey, based on responses from 10,000 people, says that 42% of men plan to vote for a Brexit, compared to 28% of women who plan to do the same.

With the battle lines drawn, the Brexit debate has hotted up in recent days with strong words being exchanged between the two sides.

Tory minister Iain Duncan Smith last week accused Prime Minister David Cameron of having a “low opinion” of British people, while Labour politician and think tank-head Peter Mandelson said Brexit campaigners are selling a “fantasy” to British people.
