57% are British against Brexit
Published Friday evening CNN Poll results show that a majority of Britons (57 percent) will now vote against Brexit.
Only 34.9 percent will vote in favor of leaving the European Union, according to a survey by the biennial European Sociological Study that measures confidence among citizens in Europe. 8.3 percent will not vote at all.
In the 2016 referendum, 52% of Britons still vote in favor of leaving. So the support of the European Union is increasing.
There is no explanation for the increase. However, the British economy has been hit hard by Brexit, with a number of major companies leaving the UK and settling in the Netherlands, among other places.
