BMG’s latest poll on behalf of Left Foot Forward reveals that more people believe the three leading UK political parties’ stance on Brexit is unclear rather than clear. The poll, conducted between 1st and 4th May, asked a representative sample of 1,441 GB adults how clear or unclear they thought each of the following parties are with respect to their Brexit stance/policies: Labour, Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats.
The Labour party are seen as the least clear, with over half (56%) of respondents stating they were either not very clear (32%) or not clear at all (24%). Only a quarter (25%) thought that Labour were either somewhat clear (19%) or very clear (6%). A further 19% or respondents said they did not know.
The Conservative party fared best out of the three parties in terms those who thought their Brexit position was clear. Overall, 39% of respondents stated that the Conservatives were somewhat clear (26%) or very clear (10%). However, this was still less than the 44% of participants who stated that the Conservative’s stance on Brexit was either not very clear (26%) or not clear at all (18%). 18% of participants stated that they did not know.
Less than a third (31%) of participants said that the Liberal Democracts were either somewhat clear (17%) or very clear (17%). Furthermore, 44% stated that the Liber Democrat position was either not very clear (27%) or not clear at all (17%). A quarter (25%) of participants stated that they did not know.
With less than a year left until the UK officially leaves the EU, this exclusive poll on behalf of Left Foot Forward reveals that none of the three traditional UK political parties have made it clear to the public what their stance on Brexit is.
