‘Remain’ 13 Points Ahead of ‘Leave’ in ORB Brexit Poll

The “Remain” camp holds a 13-point lead over “Leave” rivals in Britain’s EU referendum campaign, after winning support for the first time from a majority of men, those aged over 65 and Conservative voters, according to a poll from ORB published in Tuesday’s edition of the Telegraph newspaper.

The poll found that among those who definitely plan to vote, support for remaining in the union stood at 55 percent, while that for Brexit was at 42 percent. (bit.ly/1Xsqmsp)

The three voter groups of men, older people and Tory supporters had all favoured leaving the European Union when they were surveyed in March, the newspaper said, but a majority of each now backed “Remain”.
