According to the poll, 35 percent of those who voted to leave the EU in 2016 now want the will of the people to be observed. The survey, conducted by ComRes, an analytics and strategic business, suggests that the tide of opinion is turning, and that more people than ever now want referendum’s result to be honoured.
A majority of 54 percent agreed that Brexit should be respected, while just 25 percent disagreed.
Around 21 percent couldn’t make up their minds.
The real surprise, however, came with previous Remainers now wanting Brexit to be delivered.
Nearly half of those who completed the survey stated that Brexit shouldn’t be postponed until January 31, while 29 percent were certain that the exit date should be stretched.
Last week, Boris Johnson said he would rather “die in a ditch” than extend article 50.
The news came after rebel Tories helped push through legislation compelling him to delay Brexit for three months if he failed to strike a new deal with Brussels in the days leading up to the EU summit on October 17.
The poll also took the fresh reports into consideration, asking participants about their thoughts of the EU offering no concessions to the UK in an exit deal.
Some 43 percent agreed that if the UE made no concessions, the UK UK should leave without a deal on October 31, compared with a 32 percent who disagreed.
