Six out of 10 voters in the UK now believe that the country’s split from the European Union (EU) has either gone badly or worse than they expected.
Additionally, 42% of people who voted to leave the EU in 2016 now have a negative view of how Brexit has materialised, according to a survey done by research and strategic insight agency Opinuim ahead of the first Brexit anniversary.
For most of the Brexit process any time you’d ask a question that could be boiled down to ‘is Brexit good or bad?’ you’d have all of the Remainers saying ‘bad’ and all of the Leavers saying ‘good’ and these would cancel each other out, said Adam Drummond of Opinium.
Now what we’re seeing is a significant minority of Leavers saying that things are going badly or at least worse than they expected, he said as quoted by Anadolu.
He said 59% of Remain voters believe Brexit has gone as badly as they expected, while only 17% of Leave voters feel it has been as good as they felt it would be.
Only 7% of those who voted to remain in the EU believe that Brexit has gone better than expected, in stark contrast to the 26% of Leavers who view Brexit as having gone worse than they expected, he added.
The survey was published as the UK marks the first anniversary of its official departure from the EU after over 40 years.
Since its exit, the UK has tussled with Brussels on a number of issues, including those of fishing rights and, more importantly, the land border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
