A poll by Kantar's TNS about Brexit negotiations has revealed a nation polarised on whether the government will be able to secure a good deal. Almost half (47%) are confident in the ability of the government to negotiate these deals, while 40% are not. Unsurprisingly, confidence is twice as high amongst those that voted ‘Leave’ compared to those that voted to ‘Remain’ (72% versus 35%).
The three most important areas of focus for the negotiations are: continuing to share intelligence with other EU countries (36%); placing restrictions on migration from other EU countries (34%); and keeping access to the EU single market (32%).
Again, there is a marked difference between the priorities of leave voters versus remain. The second and third ranked policy areas are the most divisive. Placing restrictions on migration is the top priority for leavers (54%) while only 19% of remainers have this as a top priority. Access to the single market is the top priority for those wanting to remain (51%) with only one in five that voted to leave having this as a top priority (20%).
