New EU Referendum Poll shows ‘Leave’ Continue to Lead
Our first EU Referendum poll of 2016, on behalf of the Mail on Sunday, shows ‘Leave’ slightly extending its lead over remain since our last poll of 2015.

- Around one in five (21%) people remain undecided about which way to vote if a referendum was held tomorrow – up 3 percentage points.
- This is the first time since Survation asked the ‘new’ EU Referendum question that either campaign has held onto its lead from a previous poll.
- As renegotiations over the UK’s EU membership continue, nearly a third (32%) believe David Cameron is handling renegotiations badly, compared to less than a quarter (24%) who believe he is handling them well.
- Other questions show whether Boris Johnson & Theresa May could affect the EU Referendum outcome if they lead the ‘Leave’ campaign, and whether Britons think David Cameron should resign as Prime Minister if the UK votes to leave the EU.
