Poll: Most voters want Britain to leave EU

Most voters would want Britain to leave the European Union if a referendum were held now, according to a poll for The Times (£).

The Populus survey shows that 40% would leave, 37% would stay and 23% did not know how they would vote. After taking into account people's likelihood to vote and stripping the do not know votes, that translates into:

  • 53% would want to leave the EU.
  • 47% would want to stay in the EU.
