EU Referendum Latest Opinion Polls Show LEAVE Halting REMAINs Surge

ElectionOracle / EU_Referendum Jun 21, 2016 - 02:34 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Latest opinion poll shows REMAINs lead is already crumbling as YouGov now puts LEAVE back in the lead on 44% against REMAIN on 42% and therefore bringing REMAINs strong momentum in the wake of the last Thursdays horrific events to a shuddering halt that had seen LEAVEs commanding lead quickly evaporate to resolve in a series of polls that put REMAIN ahead.


The opinion polls momentum chart clearly shows a trend since Mid May of LEAVE gaining ground against REMAIN which by the start of June had both virtually neck and neck into the 13th of June when LEAVE started to pull away from REMAIN, right up until last Thursdays events that literally resulted in momentum being put into reverse gear for LEAVE that led to REMAIN taking a marginal polls lead, though with momentum on its side.

However, the latest poll now effectively puts both sides finally balanced on a knife edge, and in a very similar situation to that of the first week of June when alternating polls would give either LEAVE or REMAIN marginal leads.

So as things stand then it is no wonder than many political pundits are calling the referendum as being too close to call as now both sides are neck and beck and neither side is showing momentum to accelerate away from the other which means these last 2-3 days are going to see a frenzy of activity from both sides.

Against this my forecast conclusion of BEFORE last Thursdays evens on the basis of the sum of year long analysis concluded that the most probable result was likely to be LEAVE winning on 51.3% against REMAIN on 48.7%

EU Referendum Forecast - 12th June 16

UK 2016 EU Referendum Forecast

The average of the last 6 polls has REMAIN in the lead on 51% against LEAVE on 49% (11th June). However the REMAIN lead is set against the big picture of momentum being on the side of LEAVE that appears to be ACCELERATING. For instance 3 weeks ago REMAIN were ahead on 54% to 46%, which was typical of the REMAINs lead since the start of 2016 that entered the new year on 56% against 44%.

However, if as I expect that the LEAVE campaign momentum can be maintained for the remaining 11 days then LEAVE should be able to just achieve a tight referendum victory. Therefore the sum of my year long analysis comprising well over 120 articles and over a dozen videos then my forecast conclusion is for a LEAVE victory of 51.3% to 48.7%, a winning margin of less than 2.7%.

But to achieve this victory all Brexiters need to further intensify their efforts because as things stand today (12th June) REMAIN is probably just marginally ahead with less than 1% between REMAIN and LEAVE on an estimated 50.4% REMAIN against 49.6% LEAVE, so there is still a lot of hard work to be done in these last few days do achieve a LEAVE Brexit outcome.
