More Brits would opt to leave the European Union than would choose to stay in it if there was a referendum today, a new ITV poll has found.
A survey of 2,000 adults for Europe - the People's Poll:Tonight Progamme found that 42% would vote for Britain to break its ties with the union, while 31% would opt to stay in.
Just over a quarter (26%) remained undecided, according to the poll.
The OnePoll survey of 2,000 people also indicated hat 41% felt Britain would be better off outside the union, while 34% thought the country would be worse off. 24% remained uncertain.
Professor John Curtice of the British Polling Council said the results indicated that, while those favouring a departure from Europe held a slight lead, the number of undecided voters meant any referendum would see the result up for grabs.
The other results included:
71% think the EU has been bad for the UK, with 29% disagreeing
60% believe immigration into Britain from Europe should be capped, 23% think it should be banned altogether and 17% think it should remain the same
55% of those surveyed think the UK could do well outside the EU, with 17% disagreeing. 28% did not know.
