42% of Britons think there should be a referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal, 40% do not

A new YouGov survey shows that, for the first time since we started using this question wording in April 2017, more Britons support having a second referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal than not. A new vote would be backed by 42% of the public, compared to 40% who would oppose it.

When we first asked this question back in April of last year only 31% of people supported a second referendum, compared to 48% who wanted the 2016 vote to be the final say on the matter.

Unsurprisingly Remain and Leave voters' views are polar opposites: 66% of Remain voters support a second referendum and 21% oppose, while 66% of Leave voters oppose and 19% support.
