There has been a significant decline in Brexit confidence from one month ago. A majority (56%) now disapprove of the way in which the Government is handling the negotiations. This is the highest disapproval since January this year.
However, worse than this, The Prime Minister’s ability to get the right deal has taken a battering along with her House of Commons majority. 43% of the population (up from 33% one month ago) now disagree that she will get the right deal for Britain – the highest figure since the tracker started in November 2016.
All this means that the nation is now less confident that we will be economically better off post Brexit – opinion is evenly divided with 39% saying we will be better off, 38% that we will not. Once again, this is the worst figure recorded since the tracker started in November 2016.
While we still feel that withdrawing from the EU will mean we still have more control over immigration (61% down from 65%), the data also shows that access to free trade is just as important as controlled immigration.
