“In” Camp Extends Lead Ahead of UK’s Brexit Vote – Poll

The campaign to keep Britain in the European Union has widened its lead over the “Out” camp, according to an opinion poll by YouGov conducted for The Times newspaper although the lead was attributed to a change in the polling firm’s methodology.

Forty-four percent of respondents wanted Britain to stay in EU compared with 40 percent who wanted the country to leave, The Times reported on Wednesday.

The previous YouGov poll for The Times, published 10 days ago, gave the “In” camp a two-point lead, it said.
