The Independent reports that support for a Remain vote in the referendum on the European Union is nearly 10 points ahead of Brexit, citing a new poll. The ORB survey for the Telegraph found that if the referendum was held now some 52 per cent of respondents would back remaining a member of the EU, with 43 per cent for leave, down five points on the previous poll.
Personally, I believe that there is still no room for complacency. There’s still an urgent need to win over the undecided voters to the Remain campaign.
There’s also an urgent need to understand and discredit the arguments in favor of Brexit. In particular, the notion that Britain can reduce immigration is quaint but just not true; the Economist argued that immigration would stay the same based on skills and international competitivity.
The media needs to turn attention to immigration.
