What distinguishes re-leavers from firm remainers?

18 July 2018

In May of 2017, researchers from YouGov identified a subgroup within the British population that they dubbed ‘Re-Leavers’: individuals who had voted Remain but who now believed that the referendum result should be implemented.

This paper looks at people’s attitude to Brexit based on questions which assess whether they are re – leavers or firm remainers. The results provide an interesting insight into how the Brexit process since June 2016 has shaped the British public’s perception.
