Brexit Confidence Poll: greater confidence that Britain will be economically better off after Brexit 46% (+9)

Despite a week of negative headlines for Britain in the Brexit negotiations, overall confidence in Britain’s economic position post-Brexit has improved.

Respondents are more positive about Britain’s economic position – 46% think Britain will be economically better off post-Brexit, compared to just 37% last month. 

There has also been an increase in those who think Britain will have greater control over immigration – 67%, agree that Britain will have more control over immigration post Brexit, compared to 58% at the start of November.

When asked if controlling immigration is more important than access to free trade, 46% agree that it is. Again, this is a significant change since the question was asked last month – 38% (+8)

Agreement on whether Theresa May will get the right deal for the UK, and approval of the Brexit negotiations in general remain fairly static, and within the margin of error.
