Fresh polls show Brexit cam­paigns neck and neck

Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

LON­DON—With three days to go un­til Bri­tain votes on whether to exit the Euro­pean Union, the Leave and Re­main camps are in a vir­tual dead heat, new polls in­di­cated on Tues­day. Bri­tain votes on Thurs­day whether to leave the 28-mem­ber bloc, a ref­er­en­dum that may de­ter­mine the po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic fate of Europe. A poll for the Daily Tele­graph showed the “Re­main” side on 49 per­cent sup­port, un­changed from a week ear­lier, while “Leave” was up three points to 47 per­cent.

The re­sult, based on a sur- vey of 800 peo­ple by polling com­pany OBR in­ter­na­tional, gave the pro-EU side a lead of two points, its slimmest since OBR be­gan polling in March.

An­other poll by YouGov for The Times showed the “Leave” side over­tak­ing the Re­main camp, ac­cord­ing to re­sults re­leased on so­cial me­dia by the news­pa­per’s deputy po­lit­i­cal edi­tor Sam Coates. Those in fa­vor of a Brexit now had 44 per­cent sup­port, up one point, ver­sus 42 per­cent who wanted to stay in the bloc — a drop of two points.—Agen­cies
