In the wake of last week’s Salzburg summit, we asked a nationally representative sample of British citizens questions related to their preferred/expected Brexit outcome and their opinions on the process as a whole. Data was then weighted to the outcome of the 2016 referendum result – effectively excluding those who did not vote or refused to answer from our analysis.

A significantly higher proportion (48%) do not express support for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit (compared to 30% who do), with 71% of those asked also believing that the government should prioritise getting a ‘good deal’ and achieving a negotiated settlement over any other outcome.

When it comes to the negotiations themselves, people clearly believe this cannot be a one-sided affair – 82% believe that all sides will have to make concessions in order to achieve a workable deal.

Finally, results show that people are disgruntled with the protracted Brexit process overall: 52% of those asked want those responsible just “to get on with it”.
