Cameron’s Election Strategist Warns of Complacency in Britain’s EU Referendum

Prime Minister David Cameron’s election strategist said complacency was the biggest risk for the campaign to keep Britain in the European Union, as an opinion poll on Tuesday gave the ‘Out’ campaign a 2 percentage point lead.

The ORB poll for The Daily Telegraph showed 49 percent of respondents would vote to leave the EU in a June 23 referendum while 47 percent wanted to stay in the 28-country bloc.

Among those who definitely plan to vote, support for leaving rose to 52 percent against 45 percent to stay.
