26% of those who supported Brexit believe that things have gone worse than expected, and 16% say they think it will go wrong and consider it has been proven.
More than 60 per cent of British voters think Brexit has gone worse or worse than expected within a year of a formal Brexit.
In addition, 42 percent of people who voted for Britain to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum have a negative opinion of how the Brexit process will develop and its subsequent consequences, according to the study published Sunday by The Observer and compiled by Opinium.
Twenty-six per cent of those who supported Brexit think things have gone worse than expected, and 16 per cent say they think Brexit will go wrong and consider it proven.
Among Remain voters, 86 per cent think Brexit has gone worse or worse than expected, and only 14 per cent think it has gone better than expected.
One of the Opinium pollsters, Adam Drummond, highlighted that the most surprising thing is that supporters of Brexit are now more critical than before about its benefits. “During most of the Brexit process whenever I was asked a question about whether Brexit was good or bad, all the Remainers said ‘bad’ and all the Brexiters said ‘good’,” he explained.
“Now we see that there is a significant minority of Brexit supporters saying things are going wrong or at least worse than they expected. While 59 percent of Remainers say ‘I thought things were going to go wrong and I think it happened’. 17 per cent of Brexit supporters went wrong, saying ‘I thought it would go well, I think it went well’.
“Only 7 per cent of those in favor of Remain think that Brexit was better than expected, compared to 26 per cent of those in favor of Brexit. So instead of having two united blocs and one opposition, we have a united bloc of supporters to remain in the European Union and a more divided bloc of Brexit supporters.”
On January 1, customs controls and customs declarations will come into effect, as planned, which will increase the bureaucracy and costs of trade between the EU and the UK.
