BREXIT

UK support to rejoin EU passes 50% for first time

By Jordi Bou

July 18, 2023 - More than half of Britons would vote to rejoin the European Union for the first time since the country decided to leave the bloc seven years ago, a survey from pollsters YouGov shows.

A YouGov poll, which surveyed 2,151 adults last week, found 51 per cent of Britons would vote to rejoin the EU, while 32 per cent would stick with the 2016 decision to leave the bloc.

The proportion in favor of rejoining has risen 11 points since January 2021, when Brexit formally took place.

Some 57% of Britons told YouGov the UK was wrong to vote for Brexit in 2016, the highest figure the polling firm has recorded. One in five Britons who voted to leave the EU in 2016 now say it was the wrong decision.
