STAYING OUT Brexit news – poll shows Sun readers would vote Leave AGAIN if a second referendum were called – but they don’t want a People’s Vote

SUN readers don’t want a second referendum - and if there was one they would vote Leave again.
Unsurprisingly nearly two-thirds would back Brexit
in a new poll – and nearly half of those quizzed want No Deal
More than 61 per cent said there should “definitely not” be a second referendum
with another 11 per cent saying “probably not”.
Only 11 per cent said there “definitely should be” one
But if a second ref was held, the Leave/Remain margin would be a chunky 63/21 margin - with five per cent pledging not to vote despite being eligible.
Savvy Sun readers easily predicted the defeat of Theresa May’s Deal on Tuesday
But almost 40 per cent of them said they felt let down and powerless following the PM’s historic Meaningful Vote defeat earlier this week.
Around a third said they were “angry” about the result but a similar number described their mood as “bored”.
Only a tiny six per cent said they were “optimistic” following it.
Asked what they’d prefer to happen next, 46 per cent plumped for No Deal.
But more than 18 per cent wanted negotiations on the Deal to continue with Brussels.
Only 14 per cent were in favour of a second referendum
, with the remainder split on alternative deal to leave the EU or being “not interested” in the outcome.
Asked if Theresa May should quit as PM, 47 per cent said no
, compared to 36 per cent who said yes.
Sixteen per cent said they didn’t know.
The Sun’s Brexit poll surveyed 460 readers of both the newspaper and the website.
