November 2019 – Brexit Tracker
For the last three years, ORB International has been conducting a monthly opinion tracker, looking at UK views of the Brexit process.
This month – following the announcement of an upcoming general election – there appears to have been some small shifts in public opinion. There has been a slight fall in approval for the way the government is handling the Brexit negotiations, 23% – down from 26% at the start of October.
There has also been a fall in the number of people agreeing that Britain will be economically better off post Brexit, 32% down from 36% this time last month. Indeed, 53% disagree or strongly disagree that they personally will be financially better off post Brexit.
As was also the case in ORB’s general election poll from this weekend, there are some noticeable gender differences between responses. Women are much less likely to approve of the way in which the government is handling the Brexit negotiations (16%) that male respondents (30%). Similarly, while 22% of male respondents say they believe that they will personally be better off, while only 15% of women think they will financially better off post Brexit.
Results are from a national representative sample of 2040 respondents, conducted online between 1st to 3rd November 2019.
