Back in 2018, Number Cruncher asked people to imagine it was 2020, Britain had left the EU, and how, in that situation, they would feel about joining. Despite more eligible voters thinking Brexit was wrong than right at the time, there was a big (16-point) lead for not rejoining.
Fast forward to 2020, and we had a rare chance to compare a hypothetical question with reality. On behalf of Bloomberg, we once again asked Brits how they felt about Brexit, and about joining the EU, with some very interesting results.
Number Cruncher interviewed 1,010 GB adults between 24th and 26th March 2020. Responses are weighted by age, gender, education, region and ethnicity to match the profile of the population.
