The Brexit Party was founded, unsurprisingly, to pursue Brexit. But new polling data has found that not all of its supporters are as wedded to the policy as Farage may think.
1% of Brexit Party supporters do not want Brexit to happen, according to polling data by Opinium.
The data, compiled by academic Matthew Goodwin yesterday, showed that 1% of Brexit Party supporters want to remain in the EU and 8% desire a ‘closely aligned Brexit’.
A further 10% of Brexit Party supporters do not want a ‘clean break Brexit’. This is despite this also being one of the party’s (few) official policies, and one that distinguishes it from Boris Johnson’s Brexit policy.
Last week, polls showed that Brits would now vote to remain in the EU if there was a second referendum. Perhaps it is therefore unsurprising that even official party of Leave has its dissidents.
