EU referendum poll: pensioners, Tory voters, men deserting Brexit campaign – The Telegraph
The majority of older voters, Conservative supporters and men are now backing the campaign to stay in the EU following a collapse in support for Brexit, a new exclusive poll for the Telegraph shows.
The poll finds that the Remain campaign now has a 13-point lead with just one month until the referendum, according to the Telegraph.
The latest ORB poll puts Remain on 55% and Leave trailing on 42%, among people who definitely intend to vote.
Amongst all voters, the Remain campaign now has a 20-point lead, with 58% of voters saying they back the pro-EU campaign.
In an analysis of the data, Sir Lynton Crosby, who masterminded the Conservative Party's general election victory last year, warns that the Leave campaign is "dwindling" and has "failed to quell ongoing concerns about the financial and economic consequences of a Brexit."
