Was the 2019 general election a success?

Analysis published by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and whatukthinks.org suggests that the 2019 election, held a year ago today, had only limited success in reflecting voters’ views on the issue that it was intended to resolve – Brexit.

The research, by Professor Sir John Curtice, senior fellow at the UK in a Changing Europe, confirms that most Leave supporters voted for a pro-Brexit party (83%) and most Remain supporters backed a party that was supportive of a second referendum (83%)

One year on, this paper looks at the question ‘Did the 2019 election result reflect voters’ views on Brexit?’
