Exclusive polling that we have undertaken in collaboration with Byline Times reveals that the clear majority of voters want Labour to talk more about the problems created by Brexit.
According to the online poll, conducted by Omnisis, 61% of those surveyed think that “Labour should be talking more about the problems created by Brexit”. 21% disagree with this statement, while 18% maintain that Brexit hasn’t created any problems.
Young people were more likely to vote in favour of remaining in the EU, and the desire to see Labour highlighting its negative consequences is strongest among younger age groups. The poll found that 75% of the 18 to 24-year-olds surveyed, and 66% of those aged 25 to 34 think that Labour should be talking more about the issue.
While the proportion of participants who believe that Brexit hasn’t created any problems increases with age (29% among the 65+ bracket), 51% of the 55 to 64-year-olds surveyed, and 49% of those aged over 65 think that Labour should be highlighting its ill effects.
Responses also vary on political lines. Only 39% of 2019 Conservative voters surveyed believe that Labour should be talking more about the problems caused by Brexit, compared to 79% of Labour voters, and 91% of Liberal Democrats.
