SUPPORT FOR BREXIT Jumps 14% Since 2016 Referendum as Trump Prepares Visit

The number of Britons who publicly support Brexit — the UK break from the EU — jumped 14 points since the vote back in 2016.

Only 7 percent of Britons want to grant the EU more control over their lives.

The Daily Mail reported:

The number of Britons who want the UK to leave the EU has jumped since the referendum two years ago, a poll shows.

The annual British Social Attitudes survey revealed that rising numbers of respondents are now firmly convinced by the case for departure.

The study said 36 per cent of interviewees wanted to leave the EU, up from 22 per cent in 2015. The proportion who wanted no change fell to 19 per cent, down from 27 per cent.

Only 7 per cent – fewer than one in 14 – wanted to increase the powers of Brussels or move toward a European government, the report said.

President Donald Trump will visit London and Scotland this week.

President Trump famously landed in Scotland in 2016 on the day the Brexit vote passed.
