Research into Attitudes on Immigration and Europe for the Mail on Sunday

On behalf of the Mail on Sunday, Survation polled 1001 UK adults on January 3rd on Westminster voting intention, voting intention for the European Parliamentary elections in May and on an in/out referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU.  We also asked the public in detail their attitudes to increased migration to the UK from the EU.

Table of Survation’s polling on an in/out EU referendum which began a year ago:


The upper grid shows the weighted results not including a likelihood to vote adjustment. The lower shows the results including a turnout weight. The Survation/Sky News poll 05/06/13 used the Conservative party’s preferred referendum question. Today’s reported “vote to stay” percentage is the lowest we have recorded. The percentage of respondents saying they now “don’t know” is also the highest we’ve seen.
